There is some still work happening in the McAlpine Creek Greenway Trail Parking area.

Overview

This trail has beautiful natural trees and shrubs. There are multiple bridges that go over the trail. Those are picture-worthy. In some parts of the trail, I felt like going into the forest and going out. Most of the trail is flat with minimal elevation.

Description

From the parking area of the trailhead to the end of the trail system, the whole experience was really good. Starting off the McAlpine Creek Greenway trailhead there is still some work that needs to be done in laying out pavement to get the trailhead connected to the trail. From then on, the trail has a decent level of pavement surrounded by green trees and bushes along the trail.

In one spot of the trail, it splits off to the creek where there are multiple geese running around and there are some places where you can sit and take some rest and observe the beauty around it.

At one spot expect your trail to end where you cross the road and then on it will continue to the second trail, Campbell Creek Greenway.

Overall I really loved the whole ride.
