Gentle rolling hills through all kinds of trees.

Overview

Lots of trails wind through a unique area. The hills are frequent, but there are equally fun downhills. The trails are well maintained and pretty well-marked.

Need to Know

Free parking is available along Fairview. Be sure to note the trail you are trying to get to next will be listed on the bottom of the signs. Bring a map or use the Trail Run Project mobile app to be sure not to get lost in the web of trails.

Description

This is a gorgeous area and a fun run. The variety of trees change as you wind through the area, as do the smells and flowers. The trails are well-maintained and wellenough marked, if you know where you're going. The route provided is nice because it places the restroom in the middle for a water refill.

Flora & Fauna

Depends on the time of year, spring and summer bring amazing blooms throughout the park.
