“A great run that passes through both wooded and open areas; beautiful during the spring and summer wildflower bloom.”— John Shuttlesworth
The entrance to the parking area can only be accessed from the south when Spring Creek is outside of its banks. Snake awareness signs are posted at the beginning of the trail.
Be sure to stay left on the trail to find your way back to the parking lot. If running through the meadow, note that there can be very high grass, so take care when choosing footwear and clothing.
