Great little trial in town. Grab a map if you've never been, there are lots of side trails.

Really great bird and critter watching. Makes for a nice relaxing evening walk.

We only stayed a few minutes on this trail as we were visiting a family member at the VA Hospital in Gainesville. But the Boulware Springs Trail is on my list for a return and a more extensive walk. There was easy access for parking, and a nice clear stream running a long the trail.
Can't say anymore unfortunately, but I hope to update this later.
