Lots of broken glass
I visited toward the end of September 2020 to run the white loop. I was so happy I didn’t bring my dog, it looked like someone had broken hundreds if not thousands of bottles and plates along that trail. This was not some kids drinking the woods throwing bottles, had to be someone bringing large quantities of recycling up. Use caution and I would avoid bringing pets or trying to use minimalist shoes. Other than that maybe 3/4 mile stretch with so much glass it was nice. Just lucky I wore my shoes with rock plates in the soles instead of my sandals.
