Hickory Hill Park is open year round from dawn until dusk.

Description

This trail is a pretty straight north-south shot that bisects Hickory Hill Park from the end of the Transvaal Trail back to the Hickory Hill Dam Trail. It's flat and low lying as it parallels Ralston Creek. The northern section is pretty exposed with the northeast and northwest prairies on its sides, and the southern section is wooded. There is a creek crossing near the southern end, and while there's a plank that allows most to stay dry, on occasion it'll get displaced by heavy rains.
