Waterworks Park is best for walking or biking paved roads. My family and I couldn't exactly find any apparent established hiking trails per se. Squirrels Nest is best for Frisbee throwing, dog walks, power walking, and or biking. I'll definitely come back and use the Great Western Trail to go biking on though.

Fun and fast flowing single track MTB trail. Two small teeter todders and a couple low rails keep the trail interesting. Keep your head up for hikers and trail runners.
