The trails are rather short, but the springs and history more than make up for lack of long distance hiking. Very nice signage, visitors center, and though short, the trails are beautiful. Well worth a visit!

Great little park in city limits with a couple Bur Oaks, birding opportunities and well-maintained trails.

I have been on this trail twice and had two different experiences. The first time was right after a heavy rain, so the spring water wasn't the clear blue color that it was the second time I went. I love how close to the city it is. Learning about the aquifers before hitting the trail makes it a tad more interesting.
