This linear trail begins near the playground at Robinson Park and moves south across Lily Creek along a beautiful boardwalk. Watch for wildlife along this scenic route which takes you to the Nova Drive subdivision. Along the trail are wetlands, mixed forest, and a great view of Robinson Lake.
This treasure of a trail is located in the middle of a suburban neighborhood, but you would never know. As I took my first steps onto the boardwalk, I was greeted by a plethora of bird species, intense insect sounds and a beautiful view of Lily Creek and Robinson Lake. The hard-pack part of the trail goes through a small forest area with lots of blueberry patches and a tiny creek of crystal-clear water. The area was free of litter, well-maintained and for the most part, did not have any large rocks or protruding tree roots, which means a green light for someone with limited mobility. I only crossed paths with one man and three children. Before I walked there for the first time this morning, I honestly didn't expect much of it... The visit was very relaxing and satisfying.
