Runner Notes

A flat, even trail.

Description

From the Oak Hickory Trail, follow the obvious signs and head downhill at the intersection of a few of trails. You'll quickly head downhill and then arrive at the picturesque creek bottom. Head upstream and enjoy the life around the creek. Eventually, you run to the end of the Botanic Garden lands, and the trail continues on OWASA (Orange Water And Sewer Authority) land. The legality of running after this point is unclear, so look out for the signs. Note: I didn't note any rock that looked like an elephant.
