We took our 1, 3, and 5 yr old. We enjoyed looking at all the postings of different flowers and trees along the trail. We saw a bunch of lizards too. It was fun to play in and around the kiln too. We had lunch on a picnic bench under a big shaded tree. It was a perfect little trail for our kids.

The plant signs are a bit worn so you can’t read some of them. My 18 month old little one loved this hike! The hike down to the bridge and kiln was a bit slippery from the loose rocks. But good shoes and holding the little one’s hand made it safer for her. Fun overall hike with some history!

A little hard to find, but very easy and a cool piece of history.

Very easy and well kept trail. Has plaques explaining the different plants along the way. Halfway there is a 25ft tall kiln from the 1800's.
