Just made this account to let the couple know that my wife and met the other day. that the 2 NEW white trails they have added to the Acorn trails are awesome. My wife and I have walked ALL the trails red, whites, blues and the green and Now Yellow. we look forward to walking the new trails they set up. a lot of hard work goes into the making of the trials. That's why as we are walking them we remove limbs and dead logs that fall onto the trails, to keep it safe so we don't loose the trails. It's a wonderful place to take a walk with your dog or loved ones. keep it clean and FREE of trash. Thanks again for all the hard work. The added trail markers are a plus.
