Runner Notes

Moles love to burrow across the path, so watch your ankles.

Description

From the parking lot, head east towards the forest. You'll immediately begin ascending from the valley floor to the surrounding hilltop overlooking the park via the well manicured path. Early in the path, it is mostly gravel heading up and down the hill, but once on top it turns to mulch and, in some places, mown grass. This is a wonderful deep forest feeling kind of place; even in winter, the sun is nearly blotted out by the dense elm, maple, oak, ash, and a variety of other trees that define this trail. The trail continues to climb through the forest, but levels off just after you turn right at the start of the loop. There is one last small climb before you get to descend the rest of the way.

Along the trail, there are multiple signs informing you of the natural history of the area as well as the types of flora and fauna you are likely to see. The gem of this run is a lookout point about a third of the way along this trail. The sweeping view of the valley is one not to miss!

Flora & Fauna

Mixed hardwoods, spring flowers, birds of all sorts, raccoon, deer, and fox live in this area.
