The mile long soft-surface path of Forest Green runs between Forest Village Lane and Dorsey Lane next to the South Fork of Beargrass Creek. You’ll find a restored woodland area with diverse wildlife, including birds, deer, small mammals, fish, and amphibians. The west side of the park is home to a pollinator habitat more than an acre in size. Wetland areas and several springs are located east of Forest Bridge Road.
This rough hiking path is located in the midst of the development off Hurstbourne Parkway. It has been recently restored by Natural Areas staff and volunteers who removed invasive species and historic dumped debris and planted numerous native trees. Visitors to this undeveloped trail can expect a relatively uninterrupted hike along the Middle Fork of Beargrass Creek within a maturing woodland. Be forewarned: This relatively new natural area does not yet have a dedicated parking lot. Users may seek parking in commercial establishments along Forest Green Boulevard at their own risk.
