Trail head is at Mallard lake, a small creek-fed lagoon. It loops through some low lying areas and across the waubash-cannonball trail. Trail is a mix of packed dirt, some sandy areas and natural debris. During wet seasons there are spongy areas of black muck and mud.

Nice trail that's decently marked. Can be a busy trail head which leads to noise.

I love this trail. It has a little bit of everything. Small hills, wooded areas, streams and ponds. I always end the trail doing the Mallard Lake loop. Such a beautiful gem.
