The loop trail can be accessed at three points, but only two have parking. The end of Hardwicke Lane has room for 3-4 cars and the end of Lobo lane has a massive parking lot at the Cottonwood Sports Complex. The western tail follows the edge of the lake and consists of a wide mowed grass trail. The eastern loop is mostly in juniper scrub which can be muddy and wet for a few days after a rain. The far eastern end of the loop breaks out into large open mowed meadow with access to and a view of Lewisville Lake.
Flora & Fauna
While the Cottonwood Park contains many of its namesake trees, this trail is mostly in scrub juniper. Song birds are plentiful in the forest and waterfowl are plentiful on the lake edges.
