There are three distinct units to Battle Creek Park. The northern unit is made up of a picnic area, playgrounds, and other amenities centered on a small lake; the western unit is a trailhead at the end of the ravine through which Battle Creek flows; and the southern unit is a spaghetti network of trails through mature oaks and around the marsh—and the source of our hike of choice. This trail has lots of birds and a large variety of trees for a city park. This is mostly easy walking, with some gradual slopes.
