Surprising diversity welcomes you on this long loop trail. Most of the hike is shaded by forest, while ferns and wildflowers form the underbrush. The lower leg of the loop is flat, and damp, making several water crossings. It even brings you through a boggy area where you may be lucky enough to spy a great blue heron patiently wading in the water. The upper leg of the loop is drier and leads you past several open fields. These meadows are vast and big enough for the dogs to chase a ball or a stick.
