Trail highlights

Creek / River, Mud Puddles, Picnic Area, Shaded Hike, Viewpoint, and Wildlife Viewing

Highlights of this trail include lots of wildlife, breathtaking views of the Potomac River, lots of fun natural obstacles to keep little ones motivated and it’s a great adult workout. You can often see squirrels, deer, woodpeckers, and wild turkeys. Also, parts of it get nice and muddy for your little ones enjoyment. My 4 year old gives it two thumbs up.

My husband and I have been married for 5 years. We have two sons, 4 years old and 9 months old. I have always loved being outdoors and when I stumbled upon the local HiB group I knew it would be a perfect fit. I hope it will give my son the same love for the outdoors. I started hiking and getting involved with the Houston HiB group in May of 2016. I’ve met a ton of new like-minded moms and my son has some great buddies. When we found out we were moving back to our hometown, the first thing I researched was if there was a local HiB branch. I jumped at the opportunity to become a co-ambassador with the closest city.
