Nice walk. Interesting on a cloudy late fall day when most of the leaves had fallen. Trails are not especially well-marked so I am still not sure how much of it I actually covered, I just wandered around for a couple of miles. Saw a few people on the paved part but I did follow an unpaved section along the creek too. Enjoyed it. Will definitely go again.

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.
