“A collection of pleasant nature trails at the natural history museum.”— Juno Ogle
Take a quick jaunt over the simple and flat Oxbow Loop. There are a few benches, constructed as an Eagle Scout project, that make a nice relaxing setting. Oxbow Loop nicely exits onto Monument Meadow Trail which briefly winds through fields of native grasses and flowers.
Turn right on Prairie Crossing Trail and then a right onto the Cactus Ridge Trail. You'll find plenty of prickly pear cactus here and nice views of the nearby trails. Turn left on Chetolah Trail toward the Amphitheater Trail for a quick diversion that ends just a little ways from where the run started.
