“A gorgeous easy trail through Woodlands Park that's perfect for the whole family!”— Donovan Acker
Many people park in the Woodlands Park parking lot and then quickly scoot across the street to do the more well known 'River Place Nature Trail' run... often completely missing what is probably the most scenic trail segment in the whole area just a few feet from the car.
If you've made the drive out to the River Place area to do the River Place Nature Trail, do yourself a favor and take 10 or 15 minutes to do this quick park trail. If nothing else, it's a great warm up before hitting the bigger run across the street.
