The Walking Trail

The trail around Cedar Hill Golf Course is a really nice one. It’s a chip trail that’s good for walking and jogging along. Lots of people use it for exercise. It’s pretty all the way around. You just have to keep your eyes out for stray golf balls. The odds of getting hit by one are tiny, but not impossible. If you hear someone yell “fore!”, cover your head!

The terrain of the trail is pretty easy. It does go up and down a bit, especially in a couple of places, but for the most part there aren’t many really steep sections. Because it’s a chip trail, it’s not suitable for wheelchairs, unless they are electric ones designed for rugged terrain. For most people, the route is pretty easy and makes for an enjoyable stroll.
