Route Description for Community Trail
While the Community Trail is described as moderate in difficulty, this is largely due to its longer overall length as opposed to any real challenge along the trail. Hikers looking to complete a shorter out-and-back from the beginning of the route will find a pleasant hike that can be completed by hikers of most skill levels. The route sets out from the trailhead and initially passes through a beautifully scenic stretch of forest before passing by several picturesque lakes and heading into the open grassland. Here, you will descend down the hillside and cross over several bridges that span small creeks. Continue through the wide open grassland terrain, as you descend further downhill to eventually arrive at the end point of the hike. Remember to arrange a pick up, otherwise you will be hiking the 13.4 km back to the trailhead where you left your vehicle!
