    This is a very beautiful trail when all of the azaleas are in bloom. I was there is the Spring and it was breathtaking. There were azaleas of every color and also Japanese Maples. It is a very easy, flat trail that is paved with mulch and shaded by trees.

    Call to find out when the best time to visit this trail. Azaleas are planted everywhere on this property. The color is overwhelming in a Wizard of Oz way. Enjoy it!
