No parking area at trail entrance. I parked in a business lot at Goddard and Main. The dam at the lower pond is pretty and a must see. A good walk for younger children would be up around the larger upper pond, a total of 2k. Trails are wide but not marked so I used the app to help navigate. I plan to revisit in May check out the wildflowers and breeding birds. A nice place to visit if you live in the area.

Revisited this trail today. Explored connecting trail from the school parking lot and nearby track. Basically every running surface you could ask for (except sand) is right here. Long gradual climb (or decent) on Goddard is convenient bailout.

So happy to find a trail run close enough to my local gym. Little bit of everything (for good trail running practice) in this tucked away space right out in the open. You won't find yourself secluded from the city here, but you won't get lost either.
