Description

This is a short, paved "easy" trail in the Turkey Creek Nature Preserve that is great for a warm-up or a quick stroll with a pet. If short on time but looking for an escape into nature, this is a great outlet to be amongst the trees and surrounded by foliage, which is beautiful in the fall with all the different colored leaves. The trail is mostly gentle, but has a bit of a steep hill at the end.

Though unblazed, this trail is pretty straightforward and it's not easy to get lost. There are also benches at the start and end of the trail, along with a trail map at both locations.

Surrounded by trees on this short trail.  The paved path gets covered with leaves in the fall, which can make it slippery.
