Easy and short paved trail so kids can hike without problems. Strollers can be used. Lots of wildlife to see.
Respect the trails! Please dispose of waste and litter to protect trail environment. Share the trail. Quail Ridge Park trails are open to hiking and biking use. Please remain on existing trails and do not create your own paths.
Move to the right to allow faster trail users to pass. When passing other trail users, provide adequate warning and reduce speed. Do not use trails during rain or when paths are wet and muddy.
This paved trail is perfect for walkers, runners, and families looking for a stroll. The loop allows for continuous circuits, and has other trails that branch off and head deeper into the woods. Towne Trail is unshaded, with all of the trees forming a perimeter around it, but this allows for great views of sunrises and sunsets. A healthy prairie grows in the middle of the loop which allows for plenty of chances to see wildlife such as deer, turtles, and smaller woodland creatures. The Towne Trail is perfect for families that have younger children in strollers, and dogs on leash will love the smells and sights.
