Great little hike! You barely know you’re in the city. The path crosses several boardwalks as it winds it s way from 23rd (the Elks Club) to 16th Ave. It’s serene walking next to Hogtown Creek. The walk is fairly easy, but there are too many roots on the path for wheelchairs.

The most stunning city park in Gainesville, the Alfred Ring Park follows Hogtown Creek from NW 31st Blvd to NW 16th Ave, where the trail continues on the other side of 16th Ave as Loblolly Trail. The creek is wide and crystal clear for most of its length (a little murky near the bridge at 16th Ave). Glen Springs runs into the creek at the north end of the park. The terrain is slope forest and there are many old trees on the property. The trail is well maintained with boardwalks over the wet areas. There is a small playground for children at the north end of the park and a wildflower garden originally planted by Emily Ring. There are lots of roots on the trail so be careful.
