About This Trail

[Total: 10    Average: 2.5/5]

This nature conservancy is an amazing loop trail for little hikers! It’s shaded during the hot months and is about a mile long with lots of different sights to see. There is a creek that runs along part of the trail and a couple places to stop and look at it. There is a bamboo forest, a couple wooden bridges, benches for resting or snacking, and a lot of wildlife to view. In the warmer months there are almost always little lizards sunning themselves on the path and there are birds everywhere.

This is a highly trafficked trail and you meet a lot of leashed dogs.

I am a mama of two boys. I love drinking tea and am a better mom when we are outside exploring nature (and when I have tea). I have a family bike and love it. I enjoy baking, cooking, and eating my creations. I love the idea of yoga, but never seem to be consistent in finding time to practice. I love reading, but again rarely find the time. My family just ventured into urban farming. I love sour beers and delicious food. I work for a local non-profit as a training coordinator, and volunteer as a Branch Ambassador for our local HiB community and for the HiB Localized Support National volunteer team.
