Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The west side of the preserve is laced with a spiderweb of trails squeezed between the wetlands and Irvine Avenue. The longest, most interesting walk in the preserve involves making a loop of up to 3 miles along these trails.

Follow the trail from the east end of the parking area down through a native butterfly garden to the Muth Interpretive Center."
