Added by Jacob Sells
Hike along a small creek featuring several water features and bridge crossings through a local conservation preserve.
Park anywhere near the conservation center when you pull into the parking lot and head towards the open field where a map kiosk stands.
Follow the green trail markers (West Gorge Trail) to the creek where it follows along and intersect at about 0.4 miles. From here connect to follow the yellow trail markers (Perimeter Trail) that will take you through evergreen and deciduous forests back to the kiosk and parking lot.
If you have more time in your day or plan in advance, check out their website to plan a day when conservation education events are taking place.
