The ICC trail system was built entirely by ROC volunteers. Most of the system goes through a variety of wooded areas. Open field areas and sidewalk sections join some of the loops. An interesting feature is passage through a bamboo grove with 3-5 inch wide and 50 foot tall canes. It is a great system for a quick hike or run or exploring with the family. Parking is readily available and kiosks with trail guides are at several trailheads.

Keep your maps in a plastic bag to protect them from the rain and know how to use them. GPS units are great, but they are not substitutes for knowing how to use a map and compass.
