This trail may be closed in the event of high water.
This trail touts a few roots that may prove risky to runners. Keep your wits about you in areas of mud, as they can be quite slippery at speed.
At about the halfway point, you are right up above the confluence of Big Walnut Creek and Alum Creek. This path is curvy and winding but not too long, giving you a few different perspectives of the park.
This trail heads from where the woods seem thickest at the start to the creek leading up to the confluence. From here, it traverses a few open spots in banks along the path before heading back alongside the creek, finally ending under the bridge of the Alum Creek Trail.
Overall, it's an exciting path with turns and changes along the way and gorgeous nature to observe.
