This hike is for those loving a mixture of natural areas and formal gardens. The trail has a split personality—during the first 0.2 mile, walk through manicured flower beds and lawns on sidewalks; then transition into heavy woods. Find a man-made lily pond next to a replica of a Japanese teahouse. Watch for butterflies, birds, frogs, and dragonflies. Cypress Creek parallels the trails on their north side, but generally is not in view.
