A good workout hike that provides a bit of rolling terrain to keep things interesting.
Features: Fall Colors — River/Creek — Wildlife
Family Friendly: Portions are paved; my kids love it.
This is a good workout/training hike with short areas of decently steep grades. The hike starts off of Four Horse Road. There is not an established parking area but plenty of room along Four Horse Road to park several vehicles. There is also a small parking area further down the road at the Prairie Restoration Trailhead.
Head out on the short and easy Service Road
to do a loop of the Creekside Loop
and then the Pine Hollow Trail
. Portions of the Creekside Loop
and Pine Hollow Trail
have some rooty areas, so watch your ankles. The trails have some small, rolling ups and downs that makes for a good workout, but nothing too challenging.
