This 1.1 mile loop trail features easy hiking for all visitors. The loop trail is fully restored in 2008 with new benches, bridges and all new rock. The trail is fully interpreted and winds through many types of habitats focusing on a variety of wildlife viewing opportunities. The hiker will also have a brush with the past as the trail goes through an old gristmill and homestead site. Close by the trail is Bennett's Creek Observation deck with excellent winter views of bald eagles and waterfowl, Pace Point - one of the top ten birding spots in the state, and Mt. Zion Church - a historic 1850's era church.
