"This is a great weekend trail ride. The trip out and back is a little over 12 miles and takes about 2 hours for
a rider with average experience and endurance. It can be rough at times and riders are encouraged to take
it easy on their first time out to get a feel for the trail.
There are many hazards to look out for, one of which caught me by surprise my first time. There are about a
half dozen sink holes, most of which are about 1 ft. in diameter. And, a couple are hidden by the grass until
you are right on top of them.
The trails left by horseback riders can also be a nuisance, as the hoof marks from the horses can cause the trail to become quite
rough, not to mention all the droppings left in their trail.
To benefit the rider, there are wonderful covered rest areas placed appropriately throughout the trail and
several more seating areas between. There is plentiful wildlife, with birdhouses and wild flower
plantations throughout. I have seen plenty of wildlife on my visits and the scenery is wonderful. And, as if
that isn't enough, if you are a rail fan as I am, you will be pleased to know that, as this trail was built on an old
railroad grade, there are many historical objects remaining to see and explore all along the trail.
In conclusion, this is a great trail for the rider who wants to have some fun, get back to nature and get a
little exercise in the process."
