Easy well marked trail around the pond. Be sure to wear bug spray and watch for spider webs on the trail. Use the road to cross back to the parking area.

Good short trail. Watch your step, lots of tree roots to trip over. Really nice board walk through the backside of the trail. At the end you have to go up onto the road to get back to the parking lot. The trail mostly goes around a lake but the last little bit of the trail ends at a water break that you're not allowed to walk across. That's why you must take the road back to the parking lot.
