The park's interpretive nature trail begins at the East Trailhead, providing an easy quarter-mile walk along smooth, wide, hard-packed gravel path just above a wetland area that feeds into Carpenter Creek. This trail is intended to accommodate hikers with somewhat limited abilities and suitable for baby-strollers as well. Along this route you will encounter various types of bilingual interpretive signage to help you learn about the park's history and ecosystem.

The trail ends at the volunteer-built bridge crossing over a seasonal creek and a shady a picnicking spot just a few yards above it. For a change of scenery, return back to the parking area via Sidekick trail at the east end of the bridge - It will lead you back to the very same trailhead you started. Or if you're up for more adventure, continue on into the park via the Cairn trail connecting you to the rest of trail system 0.4 miles ahead.
