Trail Notes: 
This trail system has had a lot of work done to it in the last several years.  Trail markers are T-posts with orange, white, or orange and white markers.  All of the posts with horseshoes on top are being replaced with the T-posts.  The trail has three elements:  A shoreline trail which is marked in orange, a boundary trail, which is marked with white, and a combined trail which is marked with both orange and white.  The trail is hilly and has several stream and gully crossings, but it is a well maintained trail.

Other Trail Users:
Hikers, Cross Country Skiers in the winter, and hunters.
