Part of the walk was in the Huebner-Onion Natural Area, which is a 36 acre green space which lies across Huebner Creek. The Leon Valley Historical Society has constructed primitive trails with signage of flora and fauna so that this area may be used for educational experiences, animal, birding, insect and plant identification. Our walk registration was in Raymond Rimkus Park which abuts the Natural Area.
