Gravel path through the woods. Easy and pretty- but heavy traffic.

Went 1/11/20 and will go back! Mix of sun and shade areas of well traveled easy trail. Off season the regular bathrooms are closed. There are 2 brown port-a-potties near the nature center and parking area however.

To avoid the parking fee- you park at the high school lot closest to the intersection of bushy hill, there is a trail head across the street. The main path is flat, but there are various off-shoot trails as you head towards the park.

Only just started, but very peaceful and nice scenery. Nice flat path, good for biking and walking with stroller if you use one. will definitely be back to finish.
