To clarify, the map shows only the 1-mile jogging trail that borders the main park. That has the 59-foot elevation change. But if you walk up the hill/mountain behind the main park, there are two different trails that have a lot of elevation change. There is a paved access road (to the water and cell phone towers) that goes down the mountain and separates the two dirt trails. A lot of fitness buffs like to sprint up the very steep paved road. The dirt trails., stephen's and Alexanders's, are poorly marked as others have said, but don't worry--you'll end up back at the paved road or over by the elementary school and you can find the paved way back up the mountain. The trails have something for everyone..,fitness and wildlife--butterflies and birds. Wildflowers. Some mud sometimes along the lower elevations of the trails. Highly recommend the whole place!!

Great trail. Directions weren't the best. Steep climbs mixed in along with great views.

There are quite a bit of uphill sections. Great training ground for mountain bikers. Lots of rocky sections provide some technically. Nice short ride. There are sections where you can pick up some decent speed. Enjoy. Ride hard.

Cool rainy day, a little slippery on the steep parts, well-maintained in the park part but no trail heads from the ball park entrance. Great little herb/flower/doggy walk path just off the path.

Great little trail. You can combine Stephens way, Alexander's trail and Thompson station park to make this an easy 3.5-4 mile trail. Very well maintained even in the summer.

There are 2 trails here Alexander and Stephens way... this is a great trail.. clear and in a wooded area but right in the middle of the city. My one desire is there needs to be more clearly defined routes... as to which way is north trail head or south trail head... I did do this one with my 10 year old daughter it wasn't bad at all.

There are two trails here. Stephens way (1.8 miles) and Alexander's trail (1.1 miles), that switchback over a large hill, decent inclines. There are two crossing points of each trail and you can turn this into about a 40 min hike. It is dog friendly and we enjoy it

Short hike but was really pretty. The park at the front looked really nice as well. I'll definitely go back when I'm in need again of a shorter walk close to home.

Hiked this trail today with my husband and our 2 and 3 year olds. 3 year old made it the whole way without help. Perfect first hike for her. A bit muddy, but it is March :)

I love this trail. I try to hike it at least once a week. It's strenuous but rewarding. The highway is close so you have some traffic noise but you can't see it.
