I take my dog out on this in the summer because there is a nice stream for her to cool off in. After you pass the camping area you do not have to have a lash on your dog.

Nice, easy out and back trail. Along the way you can see and old, abandon, sealed coal mine ad a slag pile dam. I think it is close to 1.5 miles out and back not the 2.5 miles in the description.

We take this trail with our two year old in a toddler pack. He really enjoys getting out and playing in the creek at the beginning of the trail. It connects to a bike trail on the way back and you can walk onto the alligator trail from there. This trail is very woodsy and quiet. It is also a popular trail with a lot of foot traffic so I feel quite safe.

Great for those starting, have health issues, older folks or you children or just a easy stroll through the woods.

This is one of my favorite low key walk in the woods type hike with lots of points of interest - but it's not 2.5 miles. It's 3/4 mile out.
