Length: 1.3 mi • Est. 34 m
This is a great route for dogs, bikes, and walking. Many enjoy sunbathing at the creek while dogs playing in the water. There are many interconnecting trails in the area to extend this hike and continue exploring. Please note that is not advised to travel along the route when conditions are wet. Walking and biking along the wet clay can further the damage done by rain.Show more

This is an easy 3 mile hike covering the Windy Loop trail and the BMX loop trail. Little added bonus of exploring the old abandoned Coxville zoo which is accessible just off the start of the BMX trail. On the map posted, the trail leading to the abandoned zoo may not be exact, but there is only one trail leading off the main one and pretty easy to spot.Show more
