The beginning of this hike goes behind shopping malls and apartments. This whole area is mostly shopping malls with some apartments added in, so it is nice that the people who live in those apartments can get to a nice bit of nature easily. But as far as hikes go, it isn't very exiting in the beginning.
See, not so great.
We did get to see some color
But don't give up on the hike because after you cross the river...
you are in the woods
The woods are nice and full of good smells and sometimes you'll see a deer.
