From the beginning of the path, follow it uphill toward the main campus, along a small oak savanna, fields, over the bridge in a wooded area, and ring the Wailing Bell along the way. As you approach campus (see campus map) head generally west toward Orange Parking 1, but feel free to wander on campus and look at the artwork at various locations. There's also a nice picnic area as shown on the map.
At this point, switch over to the map of “Cougar Trails,” noting that these are on-site at various points. Continue down 159th to a path that veers right, away from the road and at the edge of the field. Again, wander as you like, but we generally follow the ABCDEF to A loop. This will take you farther down hill to a wetlands area, then a nice view of Mill Creek (pictured above) and then back up hill through a woodsy area (this portion of the trail can be muddy). Several birds populate this entire area. Follow the path at the edge of another grassy area, where we have spotted a blue heron, to 159th, turn left and follow the road back to its intersection.
