Runner Notes

There are rocks and roots, and some of them are loose.

Description

When starting at the southern end of the trail at top in "The Heights", the trail starts with a descent, and it's ways down to the bottom. Then it's up, down, and up to a level section followed by another down and up. The trail finishes on a downhill to Forest Park Nature Center for a drink of water at the fountain. The fountain is turned off during cold months.

This trail is usually done as a down-and-back from either end for a total of 2.2 miles depending on how you want to finish, on an uphill or a downhill.

Flora & Fauna

There is poison ivy in the area so you'll want to stay on the trail. You might see a deer now and then.
