First time on this trail. Was expecting it to be wide because of being a horse trail, but this was a road. Our hike went out to Flag Pond and back from the Nails Creek Unit.  After passing Nails Creek we came to a flatter grassy area where we saw a wild pig running full out. Then we looked to the right and there was 7-8 pigs running from us followed by a bunch of piglets. About 200 yrds farther we saw 2 white tails 50 ft from us and saw several others close by soon after.  There is a nice shaded place to rest  where you can walk down to the pond. Just watch the poison ivy. We passed by several people on this hike but it wasn't too busy.
