Widened private path tucked behind Stetson Hills neighborhood easily accessible in town. Stroller friendly. Somewhat sketchy under bridges and minimal shade; bring hat and lots of water. Happy hiking!

Great for young kids! Sunny paved trail. We explore the creek and love finding all different plants, flowers, and insects. All types of birds are present too including ducks. Found a snake shed on one of the rock outcropping as well! Great easy stroll.

Starts out paved near Sky Sox stadium, moves to packed dirt north of Stetson Hills. Tunnel underneath Dublin tends to have some water over trail, not too deep unless there’s been rain...Trail continues all the way to Woodmen...elevation change is a pretty steady climb! I run this 2-3 times per week, it’s never been overly busy!
