Beautiful, secluded, wooded trail in the heart of the city. Very light traffic; I felt like I had the whole place to myself.

Nice sandy gravel trails. Sign says no dogs though. :(

Great loop but close to the highway. We like it because it's close by.

beautiful area right in the metro. Easy trails for leisurely walks. Lots of birds to see: barn swallows, mallards, cranes. Accessible by public transportation.

Secluded, quiet with a variety of trails, enough to get lost without a map or app. Many bird varieties, fish, water creatures. Coyotes and deer can be seen, if you're quiet. Especially beautiful just after a snowfall on x x skis.

Yet another wonderful encounter with nature within the city limits. Excellent birdwatching, just a great place to recharge without having to drive 3 1/2 hours.

Lots of deer and good tree cover so wind isn't so bad along most of it even in the winter.

No dogs allowed, bummer.

A good place for a quick getaway. The pics are from Winter 2011-12! A great place to exercise a bit and break a swaet while snowshoeing or CC skiing. With teh figure 8 out over the wetland AKA lake an daround one can extend the distance exponentialy. Along I-35W, bu tnot really a bother. The Nature Center rents snowshoes ($4.00) and poles for as long as u can stand to be out!
