This trail is 1.15mi of level land, and fun for all ages! Restrooms, water fountains and picnic tables throughout the area invite you to stay after you’ve hiked! Visitors can cross Bridge Street to enjoy an additional trail near the community and butterfly gardens, or down the street a bit to the new bridge and bike trail.
