Description: Brook’s Nature Trail begins in the City of St. George’s Brook’s Nature Park, a small park constructed around a pond, a long-time local’s favorite. The trail rises steeply along the side of a hillside drainage filled with riparian plants due to the high moisture content in the area. Before this short trail reaches its end it passes a municipal water tank, situated on a bench carved out of the hillside. This bench offers a good view of downtown St. George. Continue climbing to reach the end of the trail and beginning of the Owen’s Loop Trail.
