Decent double loop over a floating boardwalk and then through creekside prairie and forest. The bugs are terrible along the creek during the warmer months. You can add the Sumac and Meadowlark Trails to the west if you want a slightly longer hike or wander off into the rest of the Elm Creek Park's trail system.
