A gravel trail loops from Bear Creek Trail to the north encircling a wetland area. An abundance of birds and other wetlands wildlife make this an interesting walk. The north wetlands loop trail is .5 miles in length. The distance between points where the wetlands loop leaves and re-connects to the main trail is an additional .17 mile making the total loop .67 miles in length. From the parking lot around the north wetland trail and back is 1.1 miles.
Winding gravel trails around the south wetlands provide an enjoyable experience for trail users and their dogs. This area was constructed in 2006/2007 and funded by a Recreational Trails Grant in the amount of $42,000 and $28,000 from the Park Sales Tax. Another $14,400 funded by the Park Sales Tax was used to construct the fenced leash-free area for dogs. This fenced 3-acre area encompasses a pond and has picnic tables on site.
