This place is BEAUTIFUL!!

New to walking/hiking and I found finding a BEGIN spot such as a sign was difficult but none the less eventually a small opening among the campus led to a path which took me into Crystal spring/ Reed Lake trail and it was very scenic. There were also many places to break for lunch, rest or birding.

Nice place to stroll, watch birds, people, and enjoy the gardens. Lots of places to sit. My 5 year old loved it. Don't go if you don't like watching people feed ducks. At least it was cracked corn and not bread.

I walk this trail almost every day with my dogs. It's quite easy but very beautiful and puts you into the heart of Reed College campus. there are always ducks on the water and even sometimes a heron or two.
