Simms Branch Trail Description

The Simms Branch Trail boasts several areas of large loblolly pine and connects Falls River to Durant Park. Watch for wildlife, including plenty of deer and maybe some beaver. You'll find a small waterfall near Durant Middle School and some rounded rocky outcrops next to Durant Park.

The park itself has two lakes and many nice nature trails. Some trails are designated for mountain bikes.
