Short and sweet but not well marked. Path is not travelled well. Pretty though.

Trail not marked well and the trail wasn't on All Trails's GPS. We walked down to a pretty deck type area and that was pretty though. but where the trail went from there I'm not sure. So only take this trail if your looking for a very very short walk.

This trail is well maintained and takes you by a pond with a variety of wildlife. It also goes under I-40, so it is not secluded nor a necessarily peaceful trail in certain areas. The trail is an easy, flat walk. If you wanted to make it longer, there is a way to hike into Sandy's Canyon and up to Fisher Point. The trail head for this is beside the pond. Bikers are commonly seen along Rio De Flag, but the path is wide enough to accommodate lots of people

Very pretty, but not marked well. You can go into the museum and get a map, but it's pretty rudimentary. There's poison ivy on the trail, so be sure to look out for that and stay in areas that are marked.
