Good Trail. A little hard to follow. I came in June, and the wildflowers were amazing.

Great trail for walking, biking, and hiking. Connects Albert-Oakland Park with Cosmo Park. The only major obstacle is a short section on sidewalks.

Grindstone nature area trail is not a loop, I got to Maguire Blvd and either it's not clearly marked how to continue or you just better turn back. This is about 1.5 miles into the trail. This is after you have crossed under the old 63 and interstate 63, not my idea of quiet morning nature walk.

Very cool workout trail in the middle of town. Very easy hike/walk/run/bike. Either paved or a wide gravel path. Benches and work out equipment along the way. Not much for sights tho....

Great walking trail but watch the map! The crushed rock trail turns to a dirt trail to complete the loop. If you don't pay attention to the map, you will miss the turn since it's not marked. We walked a mile before I looked at the map and realized we missed the turn. We never would found the loop without the map since it wasn't marked and you have to get off the crushed rock trail.

Our walk was beautiful and my friend that is in a wheelchair was able to be with us the entire time as we enjoyed the beautiful changing leaves of the season.

The main trail is out and back. There was a side trail 'Rhett'sRun' which was fun and shaded. It is flanked by a municipal dump and a rock quarry so you can't easily make a circular route off trail.

Nice little trail you can take the dogs off leash on the main path or on small side trails. Can see deer pretty readily and thousands of fireflies can light up the clearings in summer. Did have the dogs run right by a copperhead on the middle of the trail, so watch for that. The dogs can take a dip in Grindstone creek but if there has been heavy rain, the current can be a bit swift and deep.

I live a mile or so from here and it is a very nice place to run, nice gravel trail. Hiking is pretty limited though. There are some side trails but they are only a mile long.
The gravel trail is 2 miles long (not 3.3) but it is a good point to point run, especially in the spring and fall.

It snowed about five inches just before and while I was there. The trail was still easy to find. I hiked the trail versus mountain biking. It would be a nice trail for a short bike ride. Close to the university. A nice bluff view overlooking a large creek, woods and flat ground. Well worth the trip. A nice little jewel on the edge of town.
