Lots of trials to choose from. Park at the baseball field and walk across road. Lovely urban trail. I passed only a few other walkers. Great tree spirits.

Super easy trail, its not an out and back though there are several different loops you can take varying in length. The hike is definitely a quicky, one that you can do if you just want to get out for a few minutes.

The pin drop on the map is not accurate. Park across the streets from the baseball fields at 600 N Thorpe Rd. Super easy hike should be ok for just about anyone.
