Runner Notes

Fairly smooth trail, but it does have a few tree roots and deadfall that adorn the trail in places.

Description

This trail runs near Spring Creek, complete with limestone cliffs, as well as a managed meadow area that is home to many species of local bird life. This is a great, quick trail with lots to see and enjoy.

From the outer loop, you can connect to several short connector trails through the middle of the loop for a longer or shorter outing.

Flora & Fauna

There is wide variety of local bird life as well as opportunities for wildflower viewing. There is a complete list of local flora and fauna at springcreekforest.org, as well as opportunities to volunteer at this local nature preserve.
