Great trail close to home. No dogs is not a negative. Dogs are fine but they should go to appropriate trails.

Really pretty old farm.. a hidden gem right on 19. I wish they’d allow dogs. I’ll admit I’ve taken my dog there a few times before I realized they weren’t allowed and no one said anything to me but I’d rather not chance it. I’m guessing it’s so as not to scare the cows but this trail would be perfect if I could bring my dog along!

I rate this trail with one star because it doesn’t allow leashed dogs. I have asked multiple people on the trail and no one knows why there is a “no dogs” rule. Also, there were a few people that I asked about the rule that were disappointed that they couldn’t bring their dogs. Until there is a valid explanation for this rule, I rate it with one star for people attempting to walk their dogs.

The trail is the exterior boundary of Gilfillan Farm, which was a private farm until the 70’s which raised sheep, cattle and crops. The upper meadows, as well as the perimeter trail, are open for walking to watch wildlife and take in some spectacular sunsets. Turkey, deer, skunks, cottontails, squirrel, raptors, etc. Lots of wildflowers as well. After a ramble, there are several coffee places within a mile.
BTW, they are serious about the No Dogs rule....Heidi.

Nicely manicured trail for walking or running. I love that they don't allow dogs on the trail. They always get in the way and leave behind unpleasant reminders that they were there.

Walked just as evening fell. Amazing how close to SHV, yet country feel. No wildlife, nice hike close to home...

No great scenery or majestic views, but it'll do for a quick mile close to home. No winter maintenance, so you will be sure to find lots of icy areas. The track is a muddy mulch when wet. Probably a much nicer walk in the summer!
