    Trails Summary and Maps

    Trails are grouped below under their park locations. Some of the trails may continue through a park or natural area, either connecting you with another park or ending at a neighborhood access point. Many neighborhood entrances do not provide parking areas; however, there are many entrances that have space for vehicles. 
    Enjoy the natural resources of our trail system by following these simple rules:

    • Trails are open from sunrise to sunset only.
    • The collection of plant, animal, mineral and historic items is prohibited.
    • Motorized vehicles are not allowed.
    • Dogs must be leashed at all times.
    • Alcoholic beverages are prohibited.

    Entrances are clearly marked with signs that list the entrance names and distances to points along the trail.  Multi-Use trails are suitable for strollers, in-line skaters and walkers of all ages. The Blackwater Creek Bikeway is handicapped accessible.
