To get to from town lake west on 2nd north on TIllery East on 5th to Shady Lane and then north on shady lane cross airport carefully. This is the trail of smells which is unfortunate because it is a nice paved two lane bike trail. The urine odor at railroad crossing is overpowering (hold your breath). A little farther north there is a chlorine odor that lasts for a mile around the MLK crossing. Obviously sewage plant outfall. The creek is really pretty neglected and there arent that many specimen trees over here.
The bird watching here thought is impressive. Saw 3 hawks two mature and one baby by the 183 crossing. There are also a number of song birds around the golf course that you pass by in mile 4.
most crossings are under the busy through fares so thats good.
Happy trails
