Runner Notes [Suggest Changes]

The tread of the Nature Trail is gravel and very easy for runners. Just watch out for other trail users enjoying this popular entrance trail. Combines with Sidekick to complete a comfortable loop.

Description [Suggest Changes]

This wide trail leads gently away from the East Trailhead. Running along this popular multi-use trail is easy, and the nearby marsh and forest views are quite pleasant. The wide bench was accomplished by impressive rock work, which is easier to see next to a wooden bench near the start of the trail.

The trail continues toward the intersection with Sidekick, just before a volunteer-built bridge, passing a few signs identifying the area's history and flora. On the other side of the seasonal stream, the trail rises to a picnic table where it meets the start of Cairn.

Flora & Fauna [Suggest Changes]

Along with various trees and shrubs, runners might see a variety of birds including several types of woodpeckers. In the warmer months, the bright blooms of skunk cabbage can be found in the marshy areas.
