A trek starting at Townsend Park and ending at the Walter Nature Reserve. This trail travels from easy to difficult. It crosses bodies of water as well as roads. Takes about 2 hours without stopping.

This park is really close to home, and great for a quick hike. There's a lower path that runs along a creek (which I love!), and I didn't hear a single gunshot, though I was only there until about 10:30am on a weekday. There's also a wider, more level trail that runs atop the small valley, which you can incorporate into a loop (as opposed to turning around and walking the same path back).

Ticks! Not very scenic, and next to a couple gun ranges. Constant shooting.
