We were surprised at how much we enjoyed this trail. Very easy. The old well and hidden spring are real treasures to see. Beautiful trees along the way.

A great daytrip trail for a novice or otherwise. Not much change in elevation which was nice especially since it rained most of yesterday. Trail was muddy in areas, but nothing that was difficult to get through. I'd recommend setting aside 2 1/2 - 3 hours for the hike (not including breaks). You can also easily add in the 1/2 mile Limestone Sinks trail.

Surprisingly, this trail is a little jewel when considering the available hiking in the area. This trail is not usually very crowded and there are lots of opportunities for wildlife viewing along the way. At some points the cedar trees get so thick that it is dark even on the brightest days. The spring at the halfway point of the loop is gorgeous and worth the hike. Makes a nice day trip, pack a lunch!
