“A nice trail that runs the length of the trail system.”— Chris Coffee
This trail has parking at the southeast end by the Recreation Complex Entrance, as well as parking at several other locations along the way (mostly near the Lake Haigler Park Entrance). All water crossings along this trail have a bridge, so the only hazards you may come across—other than snakes or other wildlife—will be stumps, roots, mud, etc. The trail is usually in excellent shape other than the heavily trafficked equestrian routes.
Check the Greenway's website for details, but there are kayak rentals on Lake Haigler and plenty of opportunities for picnicking around the space. Trail and facility maps are available at each entrance, and they list where to find all of the cool swing bridges. There's a small set of falls near the southeast corner of Lake Haigler (accessed via a separate trail) that's a neat place for pictures, wading, enjoying a picnic, or a quiet moment.
Though other trails in the area are open to foot traffic, horses, and bikes, the length of the Blue Star Trail is only open to foot traffic.
