This is a set of three different trails designed mostly for horseback riding, but great for hiking as well. It's mostly flat with just a couple of inclines. Parts are in shady woodlands and other parts are in bright sun along open fields. The yellow and red trails are each about a 3.1 mile loop and both leave from the parking area The blue trail has more options than just one loop, and you have to use part of the yellow or red trail to get back to the blue trail.
