Miles Hiked: 2.00 Miles  Elapsed Time: N/A


If your looking for a difficult hilly hike this is not it. Flat but has some nice views. The pond is large and it has some good viewing areas. I saw 4 armadillos while hikng and some interesting looking birds and butterflies. I could not hear traffic from the highway just the constant hums of cars which is not bad also soccer practice was going on so heard lots of kids and coaches. Hiked the main trail, the pond edge trail and the crossover park of the trail. They were all very nice but I do prefer more of the elevation changing trails.
