Great place to hike with the kids. No pets though.

I hiked this trail today. I did end up at Pounds Hollow, but I saw the sign and kept going. There is a sign. It's short, but it's there. I didn't take the street back. I simply went back the way I came, turned at the little sign and finished the trail back to my car. Really nice area.

wonderful place to enjoy nature

love this trail. it can get difficult on the upper loop because of the very uneven terrain and tree roots, rocks, ect.

Great views. Easy hike. Family friendly day event.
