This is an easy, short nature interpretive trail set up to educate the public on watersheds. The park has provided guide books for borrow at the trailhead that lead you through the stops along the way.

I came here to walk my dog and was pleasantly surprised how far away from the outside world you feel with being in the middle of the bustling Woodbridge area. In late January, there were still some leaves on the trees and the temperature was low 50s that day, so it felt like a beautiful autumn hike. I've gone three times since and there haven't been more than a couple people on the trail each time. Hidden gem of a hike!

Made a nice loop with Bushy point Trail. The day was perfect for hiking.

Woods, water, history and watershed. This trail is more into education and less into history. I combined it with Bushy Point Trail for a nice loop.
