This trail has two parts: (1) an easy 5.5 mile, well-maintained loop with crushed limestone and a couple of small hills; and (2) a little more challenging 2.9 mile rustic loop that is mostly grass and dirt.

Nice 5.5 mile hike on a chilly autumn day. Very easy walk with no rolling terrain or elevation changes. In the summer it's probably hot with no protection from the sun. Lots of street noise as well.

Well maintained trail with distance markers every .5 miles on the main loop, rolling hills, seasonal prairie scenery, two bathroom facilities, and a water fountain. With the spurs and grass cut throughs, this trail can be as long or short as you want.

I do not give it a 5 because, and I know it is a prairie restoration, there are no trees along the path. So, sunny summer days bake the trail and you.
