Comments: This is a nice little trail for something so nearby, though I wouldn't go miles out of the way to see it. But Carrollton has done a very good job with the preserve. There were only 3 other people, which I attribute to it being Labor Day. I can fight through the nearby traffic, but the shooting range was a little disconcerting! Once we figured out that we weren't about to be shot things improved. Since it's just a few miles down the road from us, we'll definitely be back.
