Course Description: Start at the Nature Center bridge and head south through the nature preserve. Run past the gazebo boardwalk and turn around just past the 1.5 mile marker, where there will be a water station set up. This is a relatively flat trail, but it is a natural trail so be on the lookout for obstacles like tree branches or antlers in the road.
