Kingfisher Trail is just one of many trails within Winton Woods Park. A parking lot and picnic grounds are located at the trail head. One may also access it by walking the multi-use (West Branch) paved path that goes past the Visitors Center and more parking. No restrooms at Kingfisher Trail but there are several inside the Visitors Center. The Kingfisher Trail is slightly rugged and the lower portion gets flooded especially in the springtime. But it's a lovely place to walk and spend some time viewing nature.

An unmarked trail behind my house meets up with this trail so I'm always hiking it. It's a great place to escape and relax for an hour or so. The best season to walk this trail is definitely spring, right when the trout lilies come out. I love coming here after an evening spring rain because seemingly nobody else is in the park and the wood thrushes sing their song to you.

A fun and relaxing hike, especially when it's not crowded.

Great little family hike, seems more rural than it actually is.
