We hiked this trail very early one Sunday morning, so we didn't encounter anyone else on the trail. Because of this, it was very quiet and we heard and saw several types of birds and other wildlife. You can sign in and help yourself to a pamphlet guide at the beginning of the trail. There are 20 numbered markers along the way that correspond with the descriptions of trees (among them, the rare yellowwood tree) in the pamphlet. At the beginning of the trail is a steep hill going down into the forest. Then after a short level hike, you start up a fairly steep hill with the trail ending at the top. Trail 5 can be a quick intense hike, or you can choose to stop at each marker and experience the nature preserve. Also, if you want to extend your hike, the connecting Trail 4 (1.25 miles-moderate) will bring you back only a little past where you left off on Trail 5.
