Length of trail: 2.6 km 
Approximate time: 2 hours 
Trail Information: This is a relatively level path through and attractive mixed forest with diverse and interesting trees, plants and berries. Currently there are numbers of trees down from recent storms in several places that must be climbed through or detoured around, making the trail more challenging than it would be otherwise. Make sure you are prepared to take on these challenges if you venture here now. A clean up is planned but not yet accomplished.
