Longbow Archery Trailhead
This 0.78-mile archery trail has 25 field targets. The entire trail is barrier free but the first section does have an incline and gravel pathway. Sites 18 through 25 are fully-accessible by federal standards.
The long loop is a 0.62 mile long gravel trail with 18 archery targets, some of which are three-dimensional. The elevation change is less than 40-foot elevation change.
The shorter loop is 0.16-mile and is level, surfaced with crushed limestone, and is designed for accessibility. There are ten archery targets along this segment of trail with bow hangers and benches along the way.
