Good work out whether your walking, hiking, or mountain bike riding.. peaceful and laxing
First hit these trails while geocaching (there are several caches hidden throughout the park—but I've already said too much); I enjoyed the search, climbing up and along a few off-trail hills along the way to make my finds. The area was great for the purpose of this hobby, but I don't know that the hike itself was all that enjoyable. The paths were covered in webs despite heavy foot traffic, and long stretches have been torn up by bikes, making crossing a treacherous task.
If you dont have much time these are great trails for running or hiking. They are not scenic, but if you just need a green fix, they are fine. Dogs are allowed and we usually get about 7 miles out of a trek here. Depending on your direction, you can get some pretty good cardio! Worth the trip if you are short on time.

Great trail because of the numerous loops it offers catering to all skill levels. Trails are very well maintained, marked and the difficulty is intuitive from the name (wimp's pass, expert lake loop...) Overall, close, versatile, but not too scenic.
The beginning of this trail has tons of roots sticking out of the ground, but once you cross the bridge and hit the big hills, it's a really fun trail. It's also only about 10 minutes away from UT's campus, so it's great if you're limited on time.
