This is the segment between Black Road and Essington trailheads and it consists of lovely forest, ponds, marsh and wetlands, and the creek, and was extremely heavily used the Saturday I rode it. The trail is well maintained asphalt and has a few small hills. This segment and the Theodore Marsh segment are about a six mile round-trip.
This Great White Egret was enjoying Rock Run Creek and the beautiful day, oblivious to the people teeming the trail. I am always thankful to those who preserve such areas and allow us the privilege of enjoying nature while allowing wildlife the opportunity to dwell in pristine environments
Trail maps are posted at trailheads and are also available at their website.
