I enjoyed the short nature loop.

Super easy short loop but certainly feels like you’re in nature! Lots of foliage- a nice, pretty, quiet walk. I didn’t see any fairy houses- only a couple bird houses. It was a lovely day and the cool shade was nice on Sunday, April 22 around 1pm. Downsides- trails get muddy, some homes are very close to the area- feels like you’re in their backyard, and very short loop. I’d do this loop again, though!

best time is right now in April because the trilliums are pretty thick in here.
easy and pretty.
Wetland where springs are is interesting.
