  2. Bike Trail
  3. Parking
  4. Trails

The concrete trail along Carpenter Natural Area can be accessed from two locations.  On the East side, it begins as the sidewalk on the northwest corner of Mildred Road and Empire Street and heads north.  On the West end, the trail may be accessed on Lebanon Road north of Highway 491.  This great open space offers opportunities for hiking, biking, rollerblading, nature watching, native plant identification or whatever else the imagination may allow.  The main 1.5 mile trail is paved.  There are also many dirt paths that veer off into the hills. These are perfect for the more adventurous soul that prefers off road hiking and biking.
