“A quick, wooded escape in the middle of the city.”— Emily Roeben
Family Friendly There is a playground near the N. Proctor crossing. The stream and natural area are great for educational opportunities.
This trail has about a 200' elevation gain, with the grade hitting about 10%. Users will likely plan for an "out-and-back," so plan your uphill direction accordingly, as some prefer to take the hill to begin, and others choose to end on the hill.
