If you want a serious technical run, this isn't it. If you absolutely need to get a run in and you're pressed for time, it'll do.

Very fun trail for those new to hiking and pretty views of the lake. I highly recommend this trail!

This soft trail is well maintained and wide. It had rained the day before and the vegetation was lush and the air humid. The trail itself was dry. It has a secluded feel to it even though it follows the perimeter of the athletic fields. There are several unmarked short cuts around the northernmost ball field. However, once you enter the parking lot, it may take you a few moments to find the linkup. For this reason, the Park could use a kiosk with a trail map and signage along the trail. I also had difficulty finding the actual trail head. (For some reason, I wasn’t able to pull up this trail on my mobile device.) At first, I thought the trail started to my immediate right once entering the park. There are benches and interpretive signs on a crushed stone path as you enter the park. However, this is not the trail but a short walking display about the Park’s commitment to stream and water management. I found the actual trail head off the parking lot for the basketball courts, and the trail exits at the parking lot across the road near the lake.

Nice, suburban park trail that makes the most of what little it has. The section around the Collins Hill Aquatic Center is the most scenic as it borders a creek.

This is a great suburban park. The hard/soft trail allows for changes in scenery and elevation. The only drawback of this trail is that once you commit, you must submit. The ravines are so deep and the vegetation is so thick that you can only cut across at certain points. So make sure you hit the restrooms (which are available at the starting point) before you start. Otherwise, its either stay the course or turn back. See my tracks for 3 distance options.
