Description

This looped trail features a little bit of everything. Follow an intermittent stream through the woods and end up in a quiet, open field. With just a short stroll off the Blue Trail, find yourself at the High View, a park feature at Twin Creek MetroPark that overlooks the entire Twin Creek Valley. Keep a lookout for rare grassland birds, such as the northern harrier, bobolinks and grasshopper sparrows.
