Hiking Trail Details
Ken-O Sha has one wide, paved trail, but the other natural trails wind through the woods.
There are some wooden paths here and there to help cross some more challenging areas as well as a bridge over a gorgeous creek.
You're sure to see some beautiful wildflowers and may even see some deer.
There may be fallen tree limbs across the path at times so it may be hard to push a stroller on the natural trails.
