Route Description

The Boyd Skinner Hike is ideal for families with young children or those simply seeking a relaxing nature walk without having to leave the town’s limits. Wander through lush grasslands, and pine tree stands carpeted with seasonal wildflowers along this route. While this route is located near civilization, deer and moose are often spotted here. Note that much of the path is unshaded, so wear SPF and bring plenty of water on a sunny day.

Taking the rightmost trail signposted for the Boyd Skinner Trail, you will be led into the grasslands and over Pine Creek. After crossing the stream, you will confront an intersection, turn right here, and you will be redirected northwardly, running parallel to Pine Creek. After some hiking, the path will intersect with W Pine Street. Here, you will merge onto the American Legion Trail, which will loop you through the American Legion Park.

Once you complete the loop, retrace your steps back onto the Boyd Skinner Trail. Retrace your steps along this route all the way back to the trailhead.
