Short hike through nature preserve with cave and karst. This short trail takes you past some interesting geological formations. The first you will pass is a sinkhole, followed by a small cave. The largest cave is surrounded by a fence to prevent damage. This area is ecologically sensitive, so stay on the trail. As a nature preserve, no dogs or bikes are permitted.

there are two small caves but you couldn't get down there to explore anyway. there are barriers to it. its a small trail, it is hard to ride my bicycle on the trail. hiking is the best.

Not very long. Very poorly maintained. I wouldn't go back.

It is decent for family hiking/walking - relevantly easy and intriguing place to explore for young kids.
