About This Trail

[Total: 4    Average: 4.5/5]

Colonial Park has a paved path that runs along Colonial Drive.  This path is approximately 2 miles long and is ideal for any stroller or bike.  There are 5 parking lots along the path, so you can start or end your walk anywhere you’d like along the path.  The path passes a large playground (near Lot C) and numerous ponds.   The park also has a dirt nature trail found near Lot E.  The nature trail is a flat, easy 0.65 mile loop that passes a creek (great for a quick splash!) and one of the ponds.  Strollers are not recommended for the nature trail.
