Trail Description[edit]

In this section, the bold numbers indicate total distance in kilometers from the start of the hike, while the numbers in brackets refer to a GPS waypoint in the table above.

0.0 Start (1) at the northeast corner of the parking lot and descend to the information sign near the river (2). From here, the path enters the forest. The path is wide and grassy. At 0.2 a short herd path leads to a nice view of the river (3). At 0.4 another herd path branches to the right (4). Eventually, the trail curves to the left. At 0.9 an unmarked post is placed at the eastern-most point on the loop (7).

Another post is found at (8). At 1.2 there is a nice view of the river (9). At the junction at 1.6 (10) turn left to stay on the Wild Grape Trail. An un-signed 4-way junction is quickly reached at (11). Turn left again to return to the parking lot, but be warned, this last section of the trail has the potential to be muddy, or even completely flooded. If this is the case, you may continue ahead at (11) and follow the path along the edge of the forest to your left. Take the second path re-entering the forest, and you will quickly return to the parking lot.

This itinerary is an outline and needs more content. It has a template, but there is not enough information present for it to be of real use. It was last edited on 2010-08-24 and will be deleted if not modified for one year. Please plunge forward and rescue it!
