Went to check out this trail because I love rarely used trails! Got to the park and spent an hour looking for the trail head - what I found was a very new soccer complex and a new trail head not to be seen! Going to try to find a different place to jump on this trail. Very disappointed.

A lovely, rarely used trail that goes by sandy beaches and lovely wading areas. Near the end it also goes relatively close to some back yards, so be considerate!!
