Skunk Creek Linear Park is a great park for walking, horseback riding and biking. It is roughly 3-1/2 miles of trails that connect to the Thunderbird Paseo Park for additional trails. The trail system runs along Skunk Creek, a natural creek bed, so you're apt to see some of nature's mammal, reptiles and birds along the way.
