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.

I used the uploaded track to find this trail. If the track is correct, it is the paved path that goes around the Collins Hill Aquatic Center and Softball field. The paved path is easy and not overly crowded while I was there. About 1/4mile on the path there is a few picnic tables; just across from the picnic tables is a short in and back trail that lead to the Collins Hill High baseball field. On around the paved path I walked across a boarded bridge that lead to a neighborhood pond. Nice enough for strolling but not enough for an adventurous outing.

I chose to complete this trail after a knee injury. I wanted something short and sweet to get me back to hiking like I could before, and it did just that. There's nothing strenuous about this hike at all. It is the smallest loop that's a part of the Vickery Creek trail system, and you can certainly make this a longer hike if you would like. The trail is very close to traffic, so don't expect the peace and quiet of many other trails in the area.
