A nature trail loop used for walking. The main loop encircles the preserve and is a wide and easy path. There is a viewing and sitting platform overlooking the creek and tiny waterfall. There is also a longer extension that leads uphill and connects to one of the neighborhoods.

I actually enjoyed the incline that this trail offered! The scenery was beautiful as well. I did notice that it doesn't appear that the park is maintained very regularly. There was a trash can overflowing onto the ground and lots of garbage around it. You have to park in the larger area before you drive down the narrow road to begin the trail. It's in a quiet, neighborhood as well.

Nice place for a walk in town, seems to be a popular spot to take your dogs. Had the awkward feeling that I was walking through backyards most of the time (which I was).
