Hike Pufferbelly Trail Reviews

This is a well maintained paved path that runs through town. It actually is a lot longer than what this says, so you can make it as long/short as you want. It is good for families, pets on leash and has lights along the path. When I walked it on a Monday evening, there were several people walking, riding their bikes, roller blading and running.
