This hike is more of a walk than a hike, but Northwestway Park has a very well maintained and easy going paved walking and biking path.
The center of the loop is fairly large grassy field. I’m not much of a birder, but I would imagine this would be a good place to visit in the spring. The loop also has an disc golf course, if you’d like to try that out.
Northwestway Park is easy to find, look for the huge soccer fields at the corner of Moller Road and W 62nd Street. Park near the large playground and head south to the start of the trail. The loop itself is not very long, including the walk from the car, one time around is only .75 miles. It’s a pretty walk though, so it’s easy to step into another time around if the three quarters mile isn’t enough.
This walk is great if you’ve got small children, the walk is easy and you’ve got a great playground (with bathrooms) to top if off when you’re done.
Facilities: There are bathrooms near the parking lot.
Park entrance fee: None.
