Can be crowded on weekends and on weekday afternoons in the fall (cross-country season), but is great escape into nature in the middle of a city.
Great for beginners. Peaceful. Will see wildlife. Very cool old tombstones inside. Gave it 4 stars because it is not well marked.
This is a very popular (and very crowded) unpaved trail in Shelby Farms Park. It was built with mountain bikers in mind, but is used by hikers and horseback riders as well. It goes in and out of woods and meadows, with a final stretch following a gravel road alongside Walnut Grove Road. I ran this trail a lot with my high school cross country team, but I have to say that for hiking and trail running the nearby Lucius Burch trails are much more interesting and scenic.
