I do this trail everyday with my daughter and her 2 dogs. We love it for the cows, horses, and sheep. The trees provide nice deep shade for the summer. It's beautiful all year round. There are nice restrooms but they aren't open in the winter- so what- we don't have to pee when it's cold outside? There are folks of all ages that use this trail and if I could change anything- this would be it.

Great running trail with a view. I trained here many tines for my half marathon.

A good Sunday afternoon walk or bike ride. Not strenuous at all.

It's pretty boring, but that's coming from somebody who prefers single track type endeavors. If you're a mom with a stroller, or somebody who needs something for a speed workout, than its great.

Beautiful trail. I will be visiting again! It was hard for me to find the trailhead though.

Right off the Salunga exit near Spooky Nook exit. Trail is ideal for families, walkers, but very short for bicyclists. We saw parents with strollers and older folks so it's pretty easy. This is a pleasant mostly flat trail and on it you will see Amish farmland, meadows, wildflowers, woods, cows, horses, and Chickies creek. Horses are welcome.
