“A nice stroll along Russell Creek with access to some nice creek views.”— John Shuttlesworth
Around the midway point, just after crossing Sutherland Lane, you make a horseshoe loop around a small park that provides a great place to rest and let the kids enjoy a quick romp on the playground. After the park, the trail continues following the creek ending rather abruptly in a small field just short of Hedgcoxe Road.
Overall, a nice stroll along a wooded creek that mimics the typical greenbelt park design that you find scattered across the majority of DFW suburbs.
