The Redbud Trail is blazed in orange and easy to follow. Enter the trailhead directly across the street from the tennis courts (you can park there). There is a quick ascent to the top of a ravine, and you come down gradually. There is interesting variety in the scenery. At one point, you have the choice to continue up to complete the loop or follow a connector trail (marked with black numbers on white blazes), which basically bisects the trail.

nice short hike through the wood with a small cliff side near the beginning of the trail but nothing too exciting.
