The Running Creek Trail is a 1.54 mile, moderate difficulty, multi-use trail that forms two connected loops along the parks southern edge. The trail is accessible from the Cabell, Branch, and River trails. The trail passes through the river flats and the wooded ravines that characterize the region. A connecting trail divides the loop in half at the midpoint, making a shorter hike possible. The portions of the trail closer to the river are generally broader and easier to negotiate with the trail narrowing and increasing in difficulty at higher elevations.
