Two options, one less than a half mile and the other takes it up to about three quarters of a mile when you add the outside loop. This easy trail begins at the Visitor Center, on the east side. Parking is on the west side of the building. It is wheelchair accessible and meets ADA requirements. The trail has two different loops; an inner wider concrete surfaced quarter mile section, and an outer "challenge" loop which is now concrete as well adds about one half mile. Wayside panels inform visitors about the plants, animals, and geology of the area. An enlarged overlook area provides a view of a narrow hollow with a small spring and pools of water where wild critters come to drink. The trail winds around and through large pine and oak trees, and forest floor covered with various understory plants and wildflowers.

Nice paved trail right outside the nature center. Definitely not a "destination hike," but if you're at the nature center anyway, it's worth checking out.

A great walk for all ages before or after checking out the visitors center. Has the option of an outer loop to add a little distance if you like. Concrete paths all the way so bring Granny in her wheelvchair for a nice stroll.
