This is a great hike for folks who enjoy ponds and the creative use of a landfill, as well as for sun lovers. The loop leads to a pond with a small island that has formal gardens and a gazebo. Small waterfalls flow from the upper level to the lower level of the pond. Murfreesboro has created a boon for hikers by connecting trails and routing them along river and creek floodplains that normally would be considered unusable. A kiosk with a large color-coded map is located at the trailhead. Use caution crossing West College Street, and make a hard left onto the paved trail. Continue heading south until you come to a Y; take the left branch. Pass a bench on the left, constructed from steel rods. These benches are a signature feature of the trail.
