This shorter route through McAlpine Creek Park follows a section of the greenway and loops around a nice pond. The trail runs in very close proximity to Ray’s Fetching Meadows, a leash-free dog park, and is a great trail for kids. The elevation is almost nonexistent except for climbing a few stairs to get on and off the elevated boardwalk, and the distance is short enough to keep their attention and not wear out the youngest of children. The loop is very much out in the open, and the park is often moderately busy, providing an element of safety. The pond is open for fishing from the shore or the railed observation deck. An abundance of waterfowl wading and splashing in the pond provides an extra element of wonder for kids and adults alike.
