Gorgeous trail takes you along a creek and to a little waterfall. Perfect nature escape. 

Park in the lot off of Lakewood Drive (see map) to access the trail. This trail is good for all skill levels and is dog-friendly.

Come when there's no one else there.

Best time to be on the trail is when you've got it to yourself. That may be next to impossible nowadays, though. I spent many an hour at the 360 access area, all seasons of the year. My favorite place, the few times I could have it all to myself. Shot thousands of frames. I haven't been there in quite a while, though.

One Of My Favorites

I love this trail! Goes through wooded areas, as well as in and over the creek. There's a few good spots for swimming. Go during the week and it's pretty much all yours. Weekends can get stupid busy though. If you go, please pick up a few pieces of trash on your way out because there are too many a$$holes that leave their messes and make great places gross.

Hike Up Mount Bonnell

The trail up is a combination of manmade and natural stairs that take you up to the top. At the summit, you will find beautiful views of the area, and a pavilion where you can have a picnic lunch.
