Starting at the Centennial Trail South Parking Area, travel through mixed terrain as you cross Cold Spring Creek and ascend through rolling hills toward Lookout Point. Gaze across the sweeping landscape lush with golden native grasses before descending on smooth-treaded, gentle grades to the junction with the Highland Creek Trail.
