Great hike, took 45 min, Got the heart beating!
I have been on the Nature Trail quite a few times. It is also known as the 304, and it provides a convenient connector to several other trails, including the Freedom Trail (302), Perl Charles Memorial (1A), L.V. Yates (8), and the Ruth Hamilton (8B). The 304 begins and ends at Squaw Peak Drive and forms a 2 mile loop just to the north of the street. I have done that loop many times. Perhaps my favorite hike in this park is the 304 to the 1A and then winding around behind the summit mountain to connect to the Summit Trail and climb back up to the summit. That is an interesting and somewhat difficult hike that can take a couple hours. Wandering off the 304, there are many interesting things to see. The 304 is not by itself hard, but it can connect to harder hikes.
