I headed out today to map the newer section (well, new to me) of the trail east of Great Oaks Drive and some of the feeder trails that link with it.  While I was at it I also logged about 6 geocaches along the way.

The trail is almost all paved, save for a small segment here and there that is gravel or hardpack.  This is really a hike and bike trail and not a hiking trail.

I got a chuckle out of the parents warning their children to get away from the high grass on the edge of a field on which they were playing because there were snakes in there!  What a wonderful way to imprint negative views of nature on your kids by scaring them with exaggerated tales of anything not managed and manicured.  Just great.
