Miller Springs Nature Center Trail

If you start at the South parking lot there is another set of biking trails with a connection across the dam to the biking trails down in the prairie. You can make a nice 6 mile loop out of it all. Good 150ft elevation change that translates to a couple of good technical climbs mixed with open prairie single track that's hard and fast. All around good, basic trails to call home base.

Rocky trail--wear proper boots. My favorite because it is close to my home and not crowded! Some hikers and bikers go the wrong way though (the signs are small). THANKS to bikers who really YIELD to hikers. However, about 1/3 of the bikers I meet don't blink and eye and expect me to yield to them!
Bikers YIELD to HIKERS !!!!!

Great paved trail, perfect for getting a run in, especially a half marathon. Passes through many parks and plenty of water along the way.

Good trail, though not as great as the East loop, it appears that there are far fewer people though, worth the hike. Also there's a beautiful spring that you pass that I was even tempted to drink from.

Great trail, a bit rocky when going up the hill, but worth it for the beautiful scenery.
