Trail shared by John Shuttlesworth

A small respite along Watters Creek that will surely recharge your need for some fresh air and nature.

Description

This is a short trail that begins in a shared parking lot with the neighborhood pool and a local elementary school. This soft surface, crushed gravel path wanders in and out of tree cover and around a small field. Trails in this area are very well-maintained by the city, and you should expect to cross paths with runners, cyclists, families, and even yogis while enjoying this respite along Watters Creek.

The trail is a loop and intersects with the Watters Creek Trail that runs the length of Watters Creek. There are also some additional soft paths that aren't shown on this map that are utilized by the local school for outdoor education. Overall, a nice, short path with great access to some lovely wooded areas and plenty of nature.
