Description

The Green Trail skirts the perimeter of the large open area located on the northern side of the park. The trail winds along the bank overlooking the creekside trails. Keep an eye out for dog walkers, mountain bikers and disc golfers. This is not a good trail to run, walk, or ride with headphones in.

These trails were built as mountain bike flow trails and as such undulate and wind through the woods. They are fun and interesting but get a lot of traffic at all times of day. While this trail has some interesting features, you'll be able to recognize the artificial portions that were purpose-built for biking. Even so, this route is a great way to get outside to stretch your legs.
