Walking from the playground, turn right and go past the climbing trees. After roughly 1/4 of a mile, you’ll see a bridge and a sign for “Little Walnut Creek”, and there is an easy path nearby. While you can see the creek closer back behind the playground, proceed with caution because the brush is full of painful pricker-bushes.
