Red Oak Trail winds through a forested area in this 207- acre park. It crosses a bridge overlooking Red Oak Canyon and then completes the loop back at the trailhead. Along the trail’s edge, interpretive markers that identify flora add interest to the hike. Take time to read the information boards at the trailhead, next to the pavilion, telling about the flora and fauna found in the park. There is a kiosk with a large park map. There is an interesting rainwater harvesting demonstration, showing rainwater being collected from the pavilion roof. Restroom facilities and water are available at the trailhead. The trail is wheelchair and stroller accessible and has good signage. Head north for a short distance and reach some limestone steps going up about 5 feet and surrounded by shrubs and flowers.
