Overview

A good workout run that provides a bit of rolling terrain to keep things interesting.

Description

This is a good workout/training run with short areas of decently steep grades. The run starts off of Four Horse Road. There is not an established parking area but plenty of room along Four Horse Road to park several vehicles. There is also a small parking area further down the road at the Prairie Restoration Trail.

Head out on the short and easy Service Road to do a loop of the Creekside Loop and then the Pine Hollow Trail. Portions of the Creekside Loop and Pine Hollow Trail have some rooty areas, so watch your ankles. The trails have some small, rolling ups and downs that makes for a good workout, but nothing too challenging.
