The trail ends on 300 West and Golf Course Road.

The Planet walk was installed by sixth grade students from Mount Logan Middle school who also created a podcast to listen to as you walk (available here).

When the sun goes down, let the exploration continue. Find the planets in the sky using a stargazing app like Sky Map or Star Chart.
