The Preserve trails are considered ideal by runners for their sure footing, gentle grades, and beautiful scenery. For everyone’s safety, it is important to be aware of the Park Regulations, particularly yielding to and keeping a safe distance from equestrians and carriages. Swan Lake tends to get crowded on weekends with families, equestrians, and the elderly so alternate less crowded trails are advised. Inquire at the Preserve Office about trails that are less populated and about those that are restricted to groups of runners larger than 4.
