The trail begins just off of Hunter Drive North, and continues around the Wetlands, with a short loop going out through the restored tallgrass prairie and towards the municipal drain. The former lagoon area in the center of the trail is known for plentiful waterfowl, and there is a lookout available to view this area. Other features include ongoing restoration and habitat enhancement projects. Native tallgrass prairie, tree plantings and small wetlands/vernal pools provide habitat for reptiles, amphibians, birds, mammals and pollinating insects. A hibernaculum has been built to provide overwintering habitat for snakes.
