User: Roy Slezak Title: Short Loop Family Hike Rating:
Date: Thu Jun-11-2009
Trip Type: Day Hike
Short Loop Report:
The Short Loop trail is a narrow trail that is ideal for beginners or just casual hikers. It takes you through the woods along Swan Lake on a 2,5 mile round trip where the wildlife is abundant. You may be lucky enough to see Turkey, turtles, fox as well as all kinds of birds. There are a few inclines but nothing too drastic. You can also take a ranger-guided tour of the Dunbar Cave. This would be an ideal hiking trail for the whole family to enjoy and even do a nature scavenger hunt and see what wildlife can be spotted.
