Family Friendly An easy trail with plenty of points where you can turn around.

Need to Know

Parking all along the trail, and plenty of turnaround points. Take the trail through the woods rather than on the gravel to have a more woodsy experience.

Description

A very beautiful trail in on the University campus. The arboretum is a nature preserve that surrounds the campus. In the summer you can enjoy the lush green forest surroundings and wildlife. In the fall the colors will astonish. Can see various birds (cardinals, robins, morning doves, wild turkey, finches, etc.), critters (chipmunks, squirrels, etc.), and deer. There are a number of ponds to go past and even an adorable little chapel. One of the main highlights is on the east portion of the trail you can take in the Niagara escarpment, which is a natural rock formation that runs along the US and Canada.

The main drawback is that the city is never far away. You can constantly hear the noise of nearby cars and highways. However, it is still nice to get into what feels like a forest in the middle of an urban atmosphere. As you come to the north/nothwest portion you'll abut the golf course that is also on campus, and the trail takes a distinctly urban feel. The best parts on the southern and eastern sections going through the woods.
