Nice nature center at trailhead. Trail surface is predominately asphalt with some being gravel and even less natural surface. Varied, from restored prairie to woods to groomed park grounds. Several nice features along the way. I would of only given it three stars, the nature center earned it four.

Nice shady trail.

This trail is as hard as you choose to make it. A great place for families to experience nature and explore the natural world.

I will have to go back and walk the entire trail, as this was my second trail of the day so I only did one of the loops. You definitely need a map for this trail because it isn't just ONE loop... there are multiple ways to travel and it is a lot farther than 3.2 miles like this app states. I wasn't that impressed with the parts that I saw. There were trash and clothing laying about. You can tell they are working to clean it up and make it better, but its just not there yet... but maybe the other parts are prettier.
