Lots of varying foliage on this trail.

Miles Hiked: 2.40 Miles  Elapsed Time: 50 minutes


I hike this trail a lot as it a perfect length for a weekday workout.  It has varied surfaces, elevations and landscape.  There are no real vistas on this trail, although they have recently added a short side trail with a bench overlooking one of the valleys in the park.  While most of this trail can be hiked after rain, there is one small stretch where the "gum-mud" holds water and permanently adheres to boots and clothing if the area has not sufficently dried.
