Description

This trail follows the boundary of the Nature Center. It can be combined with the Galloway Greenway to Nature Center Connection to access the Galloway Creek Greenway for additional mileage. This is a very easy section and beginner friendly. However, the Nature Center does maintain strange rules about no jogging in groups and no dogs.
