“This is a big loop combining the Red, Blue, Yellow, and Orange trails.”
— Nick Bandura
Closed at night.
This run is along mostly rolling hills with some steeper sections. There are many opportunities to get close to the water for some great photos.

Need to Know
Sneakers are acceptable, unless its rainy out. There is a natural water spring at one of the trailheads.
While most of the trails are great for trail running, some of them are heavily covered in roots.
Getting to the trail: There are at least a half dozen trailheads for this park, any of which are good starts. For first timers, it would be a good idea to begin next to the dog park, where a box holds maps that can be taken along with you.
Starting at the dog park, you'll immediately head downhill until you reach a small stream. Along this stream will be two bridges that cross over to where the bulk of the trails are located. Head left for a longer loop (~2mi) and right for a short loop (~1mi).
If you've decided to venture left, continue along the river until you're at the water level. There are multiple directions you can go at this point. To finish up your run, head on the trail that leads away from the stream and do not cross any of the side streams.
As you run up this hill there will be many trails that intersect; however, maintain a straight path and you'll exit the woods in a field and the dog park with be visible on your right.
Enjoy your run! This is a great park that allows you to explore any distance. Most people are runners, but you'll run into the very rare cyclist.
