TRAIL SUMMARY

Cottontail trail is a short trail on the edge of the Green Springs neighbor.  The trailhead is easy to notive as it is lined with gravel until a step-over and a sign marking the entrance.  There is not any official parking so please be respectful of local homeowners.  The trail connects with Middleton Powerline and is a great trail for walking a dog.  Many flowers and wildlife are found along the path which is easy to follow.  There is nothing really exciting about the path but there is some great views of the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve and the flora of the area.  Overall, the trail is short and easy with a steady incline and great for those in the area looking to walk a dog or looking for a quick excursion into nature.
