Here is the link to the full trail system at miller park. AllTrails does not have the listing for the Purple and Gold trail.

If you start directly across from the Core Plaza and stay on the outer loop until you meetup with the Purple loop, then run Purple, Gold, Green and Red (red is flat and easy). The entire run will provide a decent, not too difficult workout. Finish it off with an accent up Challenge hill. Also on the Northeast edge of the Gold trail you can take the pedestrian bridge across to "Ridgeline Open Space" trails (see AllTrails listing). After your run dip your head in the fountains and lay in the grass and relax a while.

Decent enough trail. Great to start off your trail running training for beginners or starting up again. It is easy on the knees!

Solid trail and well marked. Definitely will get muddy come spring time. Saw quite a few deer and a pair of small bucks sparring. Had great Janruary weather with no wind, comfortable temp and overcast sky's. My major complaint is all the zip line set ups you walk by constantly along with the noise of city. All and all the pup and I enjoyed ourselves.

Great local hike right in the Philip S. Miller Complex! Their are more trails that you can link together if one requires a bit more distance, but this was enough for the time we had. Although we didn't experience this, we heard horror stories of mountain bikers hauling down the trails while hikers were on it, could be potentially hazardous.
