A wonderful trail in the city that makes you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere.

Description

This is a narrow dirt trail that parallels Swan Creek on the western hillside. Parts of the trail are steep and there are some switchbacks but overall, it's a very fun, relaxing hike. There is access occasionally to Swan Creek, or you can also go up the hill to the west and connect up to Swan Creek Park, which is a popular mountain biking area.
