Description: Campbell Creek Trail parallels Campbell Creek from West Dimond Blvd and Northwood Dr 7 1/2 miles Northeast to University Lake. The trail is marked by mileposts every 1/2 mile, beginning at West Dimond Blvd and Northwood Dr, increasing as you travel Northeast. This tour starts at the 54th Ave and Old Seward Hwy Trailhead and ventures 3 1/2 miles Northeast to University Lake. The trail has a few minor grades; however, it is well suited to the novice user. Campbell Creek flows Southwest so traveling Northeast is generally more strenuous. Hardy users used to travel under the Seward Hwy alongside Campbell Creek; this option is not currently available due to construction. Instead, users can cross the Seward Hwy on Tudor Rd to the North or Dowling Rd to the South, then, venture back to the trail. To safely cross Lake Otis Pkwy, use the traffic light or pedestrian tunnel located three blocks South at Waldron Dr. The other section of Campbell Creek Trail is presented separately under Campbell South.
