Very easy beginner greenway. All paved and flat. If you do the whole greenway the distance is 5.3 miles from the elementary school entrance.

Many short trails that can be combined to make a longer hike. Saw several people fishing but the trails were not crowded. Several picnic areas scattered throughout and a nature center.

It was an easy trail to hike but very poorly marked. It was difficult to stay on course without resorting to navigation.

Walked this trail and took fork to Robison Rock House Ruins. Great hike, but watch for snakes. Was sitting on a rock, thought I had looked and a copperhead was nearby. According to nature center the ruins are a hot spot for them, which makes total sense with the number of hidey holes! Gorgeous views and is a nice place to hike in summer, since the canopy keeps the trail cooler than in sunshine.

Not the most scenic hike, but is conveniently located from Uptown and is great for after work.

Really easy trail. There aren't much incline so if you want just a long trail without having to go up high, this trail is for you. There's also a nice area to fish if you are into that.
