“If I’m being honest, I have attempted this trail at least three times with my young children, and we’ve never made it far. Luckily, the beginning is flat and easy to access, and the kids enjoy just wandering. There is also a beautiful bridge located not too far into the trail, and the Rome Labyrinth shares a parking lot.” – Tanaya
