On the west side of Lake West, a creek and ravine provide a natural area with trails. Trails in this region are not maintained and conditions can vary depending on the weather conditions, so use caution.

The trail is shared with joggers, cyclists, and inline skating enthusiasts. Watch out for other users, keep your dog leashed, and bring supplies to clean up after your pooch. 

Kingsbridge Park is also located in the neighborhood along a smaller body of water and the Fishtrap Lake Trail winds through this park as well, crossing over the water at a picturesque bridge.
