The start of the trail is just near our house. It was really good to have a nice walk during the mornings, beautiful sceneries, lots of trees and animals can be seen while strolling.

Absolutely gorgeous!! I went on a solo trip today for a hike. It was so much fun and so beautiful. Everyone on the trail was friendly. Sometimes I couldn’t even tell I was on a trail. Definitely would not take kids on the orange trail....More
