The trail system is one of interlocking loops. There is a short trail around the canyon ponds and picnic area that links to two loops that form a second nature trail and a back country trail. The total is about 3 miles. The canyon ponds trail is less than a mile and the short nature trail is about a mile long. All three have elevation changes that might be too much for small kids, but others should enjoy it. The trail loops are marked well at the intersections. There are adirondack shelters along the trail that would entice someone interested in a secluded spot. The picnic trail is labeled as such. If desired, following nature trail #1 back to the trailhead will avoid the picnic crowds. Close to the beginning of the trail is a suspension bridge. Several other bridges cross a small stream as the trail meanders back and forth. The stream falls over a series of slate layers creating a very pleasant sound. Lots of wildlife. Great for fall colors.

Easy trail run but needs some upkeep. Lots of nice picture spots but again, this trail needs some work. It has heavy foliage for those who don't like the sun when running. Very little traffic and majority have been runners.

Easy hike, great for a family outing. Pack a picnic lunch and explore the rest of the park and aquarium as well.
