  • Just discovered this trail by accident! Took my 2 year old who LOVED it (mostly the mud) but very accessible and great for kids and dogs even when it's cooler out!
  • Cool spot w/ a fascinating history. Been by it a million times never stopped finally walked the whole loop read all the information available. very enjoyable. short little loop.
