A small forest preserve with village parks at each end, in the middle of a residential area. Wide gravel paths are supplemented with some single track paths that offer some variety in mountain biking or trail running.

Nice trail. Very wide limestone gravel trail that goes from one side of the preserve to the other in s somewhat straight fashion. Plenty of room from a couple or family to walk together. There are numerous side trails that stray off the main trail that help make this a looped trail but these can be become muddy and hilly with many obstacles like fallen down branches. I will definitely walk this trail again as it made you feel like you were in the wilderness.

Nice local trail. Very serene, dense foliage. Wonderful lunch hour walk in the woods!

Closest bit of forest to our home, so I come here often to walk in the woods, trail run, and occasionally mountain bike. Short stretches of single track keep it interesting.
