The trails serve to highlight the waterways and picturesque landscape that are such a core part of the city’s identity.

The Loop seeks to honor that legacy.
The Legacy Loop comprises three trails:
There’s also a primary trailhead - Legacy Plaza, the Gateway to the Legacy Loop, which acts as a gathering space and staging area for special events like trail runs, walks and rides.
