Beautiful area to hike and interesting ecology to explore. Saw an Indigo Bunting! as well as many other birds, amphibians and insects. Take appropriate steps to protect yourself from mosquitoes and ticks.

A nice, unspoiled trail. Many different terrain types and a variety of habitats. We hiked the complete trail, both loops, getting the geocaches. Bring lots of water and good boots, be prepared to be out for a while.

Good array of trails and landscape - the butterflies and dragonflies were quite spectacular. No fee - donations box and maps available at the entrance to the trails.

Only walked the south loop, between 7-8 kms. It took about 2.5 hours at a moderate pace which includes a total of about 30 minutes of rest. Started on the more difficult east side trail and looped back on the easier Blue Trail south loop...More

Yes as long as they are on a leash & you pick up after them. Be warned that the ticks are bad in this region so be sure to pack a Tick Remover key for your hike there!
