A great trail to train. Nothing boring here. Elevation and scenery changes will keep your attention.

Very runnable trail that’s good for training. Some wooded some grassy. If you go north you can connect to the Holy Hill Trail for more trees and hills. About medium technical in some places otherwise pretty smooth surface.

Beautiful! (It helped that it was 70 & sunny in April). We parked at Emerald Dr & hiked out & back from our car only about 2.5 miles, but this area offers a few more miles. Diverse scenery - pine forested area, prairie, a pretty bridge over the river. Even an easy access area for the dog to swim into the river. We really enjoyed it & will definitely be back to do more. Not hilly or challenging, just a nice, easy walk in nature.
