Family Friendly: Ease and accessibility make this a great trail for families.
The northern side of the trail offers some nicely-built features including a couple of rock gardens, pumps, rails and a teeter-totter.
The trail is well built throughout - not as densely wooded as the Maskenthine Trail - South
, but you'll wind back and forth between pine forest and prairie. The grade is negligible throughout - no benched areas - but where there is a grade, the builders have embedded some good drainage.
Be warned though, the trail is largely clay so any moisture makes this a mucky, slippery mess so if it's wet, let it set.
