This trail starts just east of the visitor center and ends at the horse camp field. Features include: historic home sites, wildflowers, escaped domestic flowers, woodland songbirds, stone fences, and ruins of a swimming pool built in the 1920s. Mountain bikes are allowed on this trail. Bikers and hikers should be aware and alert. Bikers, signal your presence to hikers when overtaking.
