The trail in July was not pristine because a lot of the planting have turned brown. Spring time would have been incredible to hike and photograph this place. Joan MacQueen Middle School is the location to enter in your GPS navigation. When you get to the school front parking. You want to walk to the north where you can see a street. It's important to get to that street from where you parked and you want to be outside the school campus. If you make a mistake walking inside the school campus you might have to climb over a fence to get to that street on the north. Because the entrance to the trail is on the N.E. outside of school campus boundary fence.

Note that there's no trail map, trail guide post or signage along the trail. Google Earth will be required to create your own trail map to printout the aerial view of the site. If you don't have that printout or jpeg image of the aerial view save to your cell as a reference. It's going to be a lot of visual guessing and hoping you're on the right trail. There's little shade on the trails so! you know what that means, protect yourself from the sun exposure and of course have plenty of water to drink.

There's a lot of photographic opportunities along the edges of the site. Since the trails are not labeled you're pretty much on your own to explore the trails on the wild side. If you stay on the trail you'll be fine if you take any short cuts going back the school, be prepared to climb over a six feet tall fence.
