This is a pleasant little trail on the edge of a golf course. While it is too urban to escape the noise of the surrounding city, the secluded trail itself is beautiful with lots of tall trees and creeks. It is well maintained. My only complaint is the leaf recycling area in the middle of the trail which is an eyesore, but all in all, this is a great place for a short escape from the city.
