Crystal Spring and southwest

This 10.5-mile route involved a little creative route planning to include the out-of-the-way, but super cute pocket park Sunrise Park. On this route, you’ll get to visit five parks, including Fern Park, a quiet little neighborhood park with access to the Chesnut Ridge Loop and the Mill Mountain trail system. Other highlights include visiting Harkrader Park, one of the smallest City parks, and the newly renovated River’s Edge North Park.
