Gorgeous trail, close to home. Not challenging, but a really nice walk when I need to get away "quick." I'm amazed at every turn when I'n reminded that such beauty is in my own back yard! Will likely do again and again in all seasons because of its close proximity.

One of my favorite hikes in that area. Lots of free space to roam around and explore and really easy going.
