Relatively short but sweet

Trail View
The main trails were well maintained and wide enough so that you wouldn't have to push through grass or brush.

Coppertone and I were not expecting much but thought we should still get this trail logged.  It turned out to be better than expected, even if some of the minor trails were overgrown, much to Coppertone's consternation.  Though we expected only 1.5 miles of trails here the total was more like 3 and with some doubling back that we did as we mapped the trails we ended up hiking a bit more than that.

We only saw four other people on the trail.  We saw much more on the golf courses when they came into view now and then.

We also enjoyed looking at the old recreation hall and old swimming pool that had been filled in.
