Description

The Tall Grass Trail is a relatively flat trail that travels along the contour of a hill. In some sections it looks like it follows an old road. On a clear day you might get glimpses of the city or the highway below. The trail travels through a fairly open, mixed forest. The trail gets its name from the small field at the southern end of the trail.
