Description of area

Scared when you saw the name Dreaded Hill? Do not worry, we are just walking to the base of that hill. Slight grade going up one mile on the dirt trail, then we turn around and come back. Two miles total.

The trail for the most part is smooth but there are ruts on some parts. We will go under oak trees at times. Last week we saw deer with fawns!
