Features: Birding — Fall Colors — Spring — Wildlife
Dogs: Leashed

Description

Park at the trailhead for the Highlands Trail, run about 0.1 mile to the trail intersection (visible mown grass), take a right, and then finally another right at the intersection of the Ridge and Foothills Trail. The first half mile or so borders the park, so in winter you have a pretty clear view of it all. In summer, you get the feeling that you are totally removed from the scene with the exception of the happy noise of kids playing. The last half mile or so borders the Meadow Trail, so at that point you are totally isolated from everyone except your fellow runners and the occasional horse (do watch for their "gifts"). Connect to the Meadow Trail, or turn back the way you came and call it a day!

Flora & Fauna

Mixed hardwoods, deer, fox, rabbit, and birds of several varieties including robin, woodpeckers and red wing blackbird can be found here.
