Description

This trail can be joined in a variety of locations with parking available mostly along neighboring streets. The path is entirely concrete providing access for walkers, runners, and cyclists alike. At the southern end of the trail, the path moves through a creek overflow area with great opportunities for bird watching as well as lush vegetation. The majority of the trail wanders back and forth across Watters Creek and sticks primarily to the greenbelt areas. There are several shorter access and connecting trails that intersect the path, but great signage make the path very easy to follow. Overall, this is a great place to enjoy some shade and a taste of nature in bustling suburbia.
