You will be exploring both meadow and woods on this hike. Leave the Whispering Oaks Picnic Area and begin a loop that leads to the banks of Big Darby Creek, a state scenic river. A spur trail visits the waterway to admire the aquatic splendor. The hike then continues downstream through a mosaic of tall trees, prairies, and a mix of the two. Come alongside a tributary of Big Darby Creek before returning to the trailhead. The well-marked and maintained trail is mostly level and makes for a pleasant track enjoyed by all.
