Description

The main trail at Wells Recreation Park is a wide crushed rock trail that meanders through the woods. Along the way there are several side trails that loop into the woods and return to the main trail. The main trail crosses a bridge near a wetland. A side trail goes around the wetland and comes out on the old road that runs along the highway. From here you can turn left and return to the main trail where it meets the old road.

About half way along the main trail there is another main trail that goes to an adjacent neighborhood.
