Features Birding · River/Creek · Wildflowers · Wildlife

Some sections may flood after heavy rains / spring snow melt.

Runner Notes

Mostly paved and concrete, some sections offer a packed gravel extension along one side or the other.

Description

This paved path is a nice suburban trail winding along the side of the Signal ditch. The route connects Fallbrook Farms Park in the NE to the end of the Farmers Highline Canal Trail at 128th Ave.

This trail is best used as a great morning route with good tree cover in most sections.

Flora & Fauna

Rabbits, ducks, various birds, including doves and raptors
