Trail Information: There are 2 trails, one is a mountain bike trail and the other is a Running/Hiking trail both are fun runs. The Running trail is 5 miles through the woods. It is well maintained and nice mix of hills and flats. There are large angry bugs at the lake, bring bug spray in the summer.
The Bike trail (hogs run) is 7 miles and a fun run as well, but you have to dodge the bikers. :)
