This easy, foot-traffic-only loop trail begins from the dirt road that leads to the stables and continues on through varying wildlife habitats. You will descend through mixed pine and hardwood trees, wind along the rocky shoals of Fairforest Creek giving a sense of a mountain trail, and then loop back uphill through the woods. Remains of an old mill site along Fairforest Creek and bridge crossing are two historical points of view along this trail. Trail signs at intersections will help you find your way back. You may see a variety wildlife including birds, deer, squirrels, and snakes.

It says 1.5 miles, however we do 1.5 a good bit and this felt longer our Fitbit agreed and said it was over 2 miles. Very shady though. Some parts really worked my dogs.

Great little trail. The sections by the water are rewarding. Our dogs enjoy the trail as well! Keep your eyes open for deer...

Great hike with the kids. There is ruins of an old mill foundation and some signs giving history along the trail. Great hike with an option to check out the river at some specific points. Lots of fun.
