There are very nice views of the fall color of Bird Hills from the Barton Nature area trails. The Barton Nature part of my track also includes an out-and-back along the river - it offers occasional, very nice, views right on the water, but it is about 500" each way of very narrow trail, almost just a deer track. Along the way there is a party clearing around a large tree with some stella. I'll probably stick to the primary paths next time.
Kuebler is very pretty and warrants more than just the cruise through I gave it - would be worth it to loop back on other paths and wind through the whole area.
Bird Hills is beautiful. It was fairly busy. The trails are nice, although there are lots of intersections with no guidance on where each path goes (but it would be hard to actually get lost here). Has a nice amount of up and down as well, with occasional glimpses of the river from some paths.

Great short hike. Trails are a bit confusing so make sure to have a map!
