Access the Spring Run Trail from the intersection of East and Excelsior avenues.
Did this walk yesterday with my 4 year old on her scooter and my wife jogging next to her. One mile in and one mile out of well-maintained over trail. Nice mix of woods and wetlands. Perfect springtime trail to see and hear all the birds. The beer distributor near the trailhead was a bonus!
This is a lovely short trail - it's one mile in one direction. It's flat, paved and runs through wooded areas and over wetlands and streams. There are lots of wildflowers along the walk, you can hear frogs croaking, birds chirping, and rabbits running here and there. It is a very pleasant easy walk.
As a beginner to trail walking, I am loving this easy walk. I'm in my late 60's and two miles total (back and forth) is exactly my level of endurance. I enjoy the paved surface and the surrounding wetland foliage. I'm anxious to experience other trails in the future. As of right now, this is perfect!
Very lovely paved trail approx 1mi long to 87.
Nice bridges, outstanding foliage.
New parking area w crossrail fencing.
There is a reminder sign at the start of the trail indicated pet owners are to clean up after their animals and keep them leashed.
Unfortunately, I encountered four different dogs off leash and running around bothering other people along the way.
One such dog came out of the woods with an unkempt male reeking of beer - out of control and running down the trail.
Another dog off leash ran up to me with it's owner well aware of my presence as they were walking towards me - waiting until the dog was jumping on me scratching my leg with its long nails covered in mud from the stream. Not so much as an apology.
Do not expect anyone on bikes or kid scooters to move to one side of the trail upon passing. It is every man for himself out there.
A bag of dog poo lay on the side of the trail in a tied up bag. Nice.
Shattered glass littered the entrance/exit of the parking space. Must be from an earlier accident.
It is a shame an entitled few believe laws do not pertain to them. Not all dogs are friendly nor are all people dog-friendly.
When out in the woods, I suppose it is easier to get away with it and it is really becoming a nuisance. This is going to end up restricting everyone from being able to enjoy walks with their leashed pets if this continues.
A stronger police presence would be helpful. Such a lovely setting and only open since 2010.
