Your Keys to Adventure

  1. Park at the Nature Center.
  2. From the garden in front of the Nature Center, walk across the lawn to the bridge across the stream near the back corner of the building.
  3. Cross the bridge and turn right.
  4. After passing the tree in the center of the trail, turn uphill to your left.
  5. Continue up the hill over the roots and steps until you reach a high bench and a power line tree break. If you are ready for a break, this is a great place to sit and enjoy the birds around you.
  6. When you’re ready, follow the trail under the power lines and you will find the post just ahead on your right.
  7. To return to the Nature Center, continue in the same direction and enjoy a leisurely hike down the hill.
  8. Eventually you will come to an intersection of two trails. Take the level and easy path, keeping the stream on your right.
  9. Cross a wooden bridge and now the stream will be on your left.
  10. Continue straight. DO NOT take the trail up the hill.
  11. Soon, you will cross another wooden bridge behind the outdoor play area.
  12. When you reach the pond, turn left on the gravel path to head back to the Nature Center.
