Easy trail that takes you by the stream, and gives you a great view of the mountains. You get to walk us a staircase like area that take you out to an open field. Lots of trees along the way. This trail connect to Bear Creek Regional Park and trails and Dog Park. This is a good place to bring your kids. My Bubs and I will be back to explore the regional trail and to check the dog park out with my new pup.

Great for little ones! There are a handful of spots that kiddos can dip their toes in the creek.

About half the trail is very well covered with trees and half is prairie-like with views of the city.

Lots of wildflowers this time of year too.
