The newly renovated Duck Creek Trail

See also

The Duck Creek Trail at the Wetlands Nature Reserve has recently undergone a massive facelift. What was once a small dirt turnoff from Broadbent Boulevard is now a paved lot with restrooms, solar-powered lighting, and covered picnic areas.

From the trailhead, Duck Creek branches into three trails—Duck Creek Trail, Coyote Howl Trail, and Quail Run Trail. All three are great for children and the elderly. The trails are paved and mostly flat, the only exception being the Dragonfly Divide (at the end of each of the three trails), which is still gravel. Otherwise, the trails should be wheelchair accessible. The renovations also included the addition of handicapped parking in the newly paved parking lot.

There are a series of ponds at the end of each of the three trails. There are also a number of small bridges on the trails. All of the trails are interconnected, so you can begin on one and return on another. There are multiple covered benches to rest on and view the wildlife and scenery.

It’s open year round from dawn until dusk. In the winter, particularly January and February, coyotes do tend to come closer than usual so it is best to be off the trail before dusk. Duck Creek is located next to Sam Boyd Stadium. Click HERE to see its exact location.
