About Former Golf Course Trails
3.8 miles – paved, hilly
The golf course has been decommissioned, but the cart paths have been left in place for walkers. Each half of the golf course is about two miles, but they can easily be combined for a full loop of four miles. Very hilly, so it makes for a good workout.

The AllTrails website has a description with a map of a hike at the former golf course.
