Need to Know

There is one large creek crossing over a spillway in the back. Use caution crossing it, as the slime buildup on the concrete can be very slippery.

Good quality trails and well maintained. Lots of variety. Fields, high canopy forest and a river Scholl’s was pretty washed out on the downhill par… 16.3mi
