Lovely short walk through the forest and the old Hoffman mill and town site. The picnic facilities and campground at the start of the trail were really nice.

Supported by great organisations

Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
