No dogs allowed.
I wanted to take my kids on a nice little hike and found this gem. It's a great place for children and has lots of shade. We did the whole loop trail I believe was called stream trail and blue bird, it was the whole loop. The kids got tired butane it to the end and there was a nice little stream and animal statutes.
Really nice manicured trails, very naturey, if that's even a word. Went at 7am, this summer season just happened to be very humid, with the stream there were a lot of mosquitoes and flies, that kept swarming around us. When we got out of the trees and on road runner trail it was nice. All the trails just kinda of run into each other.
This is a very family friendly trail.
There are many different paths to explore, especially with young children or if you just want to spend some time relaxing with a friend. Spend as much time as you want exploring all the short trials.
Take the Roadrunner Trail if you want a bit more of a challenge (and the longest walk) as it will give you the best views from higher up. At the top of Roadrunner you will see a path that leads to the reservoir loop. We used this to go jogging (1.7 miles) before retuning to the rest of the nature walk.
Stick to the lower creekside trails for shade and kids. No pets allowed. Kids will enjoy the Nature Center, which is like a miniature natural history exhibit with a few interactive activities. Great for Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts to conduct troop activities.

I'm new to nature trail walking and this one is a great starter for me. Close to my home. Will go again.
