I walked the 2.5 mile loop.

My son was playing soccer at the park and I decided to check out the trailhead and see if I could get some exercise in. I loved it and was surprised to see such a trail in the area especially the fact that it seemed fairly isolated. The trails were definitely rugged for me; I am 52 and overweight. I hadn't been walking much over the last several weeks and so experienced a sore knee, which eventually worked itself out; shin splints, which also eventually subsided, though not so quickly as the sore knee; and lastly I felt some fatigue with which I can survive if I just gut it out. All I mean is that overweight 52 year-olders should beware. All in all I loved this trail. I observed a pair of cardinals following along as their fledging went from tree to tree. That was a treat. We see baby blue jays and mockingbirds all the time in our neighborhood, and though we see cardinals from time to time in the yard, I take it they try to find more secluded areas to nest.
