This is a hike for solitude and “roughing it” a bit. After a short walk along the tennis courts, the trail leads into the dense woods. Williamson Creek borders the south and east side of the hike. Sometimes following the trail can be a challenge. This hike starts near the tennis courts and goes past the ball fields. It joins the paved jogging trail, which circles the play fields and has no shade. Follow the paved trail south into the wooded area, where the surface is dirt and grass. There is no trail signage, so keep heading generally south and east on the narrow path. The woods are heavy, and the undergrowth can be thick. Walking becomes a little more difficult due to the undergrowth and the wandering nature of the trail.
