This is one of my favorite walking trails, best time is early morning in the summer months. It's peaceful and glorious watching sun come through trees. Great walk for all ages. Easy incline.

My sis and I spent about two hours walking the path, felt safe, and the country is beautiful. I live in Cottage Grove, so it was a treat to show off what we have to offer. The local Frisbie Disk course is also near by.
