This trail is just short of 2 miles and basically loops around Station Camp Schools. Starting from the trailhead at the Highschool, the football practice fields are to your left and a shady road that follows a creek is to your right. Then the paved greenway makes a left turn away from the road and creek and runs between the school and Wellington Farms apartments. Although you can't really see any buildings on either side of you because this lovely part of the trail has lots of trees and plants and is very well shaded. Then the trail spits you out at the elementary school and you pretty much have to walk the school sidewalks for a while until the trail just dead ends at about .3 miles shy from making a complete loop to trailhead. You have to walk in gravel at the side of the road next to oncoming cars to get back. Guess they haven't completed this yet. First half of greenway is really nice compared to other greenways but the second half gets a big thumbs down. Also would be nice if it was longer.
This isn't much of a trail as it is split into two sections that aren't continuous. The shorter trail is all concrete and is an out and back trail. It traverses next to a creek which is nice but the other side is basically in the extended backyard of subdivision houses. It is a flat 0.8 miles. It's not as much of a hiking trail as it is a flat concrete oath to teach kids his to ride bikes and pushing baby strollers.
The other trail is 1 mile and it bizarrely terminates in a school parking lot. It had a gentle rise and is not challenging. It essentially circles the high school and it can be circled by walking around the middle school and high school. This round be a little odd during school hours. Both paths combined have one way distance of 1.9 miles and 3.8 out and back.
Not very good but it beats the limited trails in Hendersonville.
