The Trails
4

There are 2 trail loops in the park. One north of Red Gate Road and the other south of the road. The loops together give everyone about two miles to walk. But there are many side trails to add to the adventure.
There is a restroom at the parking area. And one picnic table.
No drinking water, unless you want to try the river.
Today there were 6 dogs between 2 of us. They got to nose each other and then it was off to the races. Great time was had by all.

Love the trails and all the friendly dog owners! My dog loves the nature smells and wooded area to explore. You can run or walk the trails while your dog tags along leash free! Just make sure to clean up after the dog so you don't ruin it for everyone else!
