This is not a hike, it's a stroll through a flat meadow. Allegedly there are birds earlier in the season, but we saw no wildlife other than crickets and a couple bees. The trail also no longer runs near the creek and is mostly closed for restoration, so only about .8 miles of this trail is available. There's another loop which crosses this loop you can take,but it is even more boring, running by a golf course and a rather large development.

Great and easy trail although muddy in certain areas, but you can expect that in late November...will be back!

Great trail for running or walking - two Bald Eagles at the top of Pines between Pappies Bridge & the Golf Course today. Something you don't see everyday.

The trail is fairly level with easy access but can be muddy. Dog and bike friendly.

Wonderful hike/walk with dogs. Lots of water for dogs to cool off and lots of pretty scenery for people. If you take the memorial trail it is 4 miles. All trails are well signed. Also great for young children.
