An extremely well maintained trail running north for about a half mile and then looping back. If combined with the south loop there is more than two miles of trail.

Very peaceful trails and very well maintained. I love getting lost for a few hours here and exploring the side trails.

What a beautiful park. The trails are very well maintained and this northern loop is wide and I think accessable all the way. There are benches about every tenth of a mile so somebody who could not walk very far could sit often. If I had to find a fault it would be the noise. The trails are never far from roads so there is always auto sounds even if you cannot see them.
