Description

This is the only trail in Newton where you can escape pavement. Most of the trail surface is wood chips, except for the part along Main St. which is a dirt path. It's also a favorite for runners, walkers, and bikers, so use caution.

Overall, this is a fun, wooded trail where you can get away from traffic for a while. The trail follows the Sand Creek which eventually goes through downtown Newton. This is basically a flat trail with no challenging features, but it gives new runners a place to get out among the trees and build a love for the outdoors.

This part is really noisy due to the I-135 traffic; otherwise, it's fun
