15.9 mi
Vertical Gain
360 m

This is a paved 15.9 mile trail along Spring Creek that is a good out & back for almost 32 miles.  One way elevation gain is 360 feet, so double that as well if doing out & back. The trail connects several parks including Denise Johnson, Jesse Jones and John Pundt.  The trail has beautiful views of the creek and forested areas.  Trail signs and markers are helpful and educational.

I had planned to run the out & back this weekend, Jan. 24, 2024, but after three days of fairly constant local precipitation, I did a test run only to find that sections of the trail are flooded.  I waded into my thighs, but the water is very dark and who knows what's in there!!  So better to wait! 

The flooded section is between Carter Park and Jessie Jones.  I went to the area from both sides and there is about a mile that is flooded.  There is also a section flooded east of Jessie Jones, but there is additional trail on higher elevation that allows you to get around it.  Almost 30 miles of the trail are fine, but a mile or two under pretty deep, dark water.  

For future attempts, please check the trail or call one of the parks beforehand if there has been local precipitation!
