The Plateau Creative Arts Center is at the Mini-golf trailhead and is a delightful gallery worthy of a short visit. Behind the gallery a new sculpture trail was constructed in 2013. There are a number of sculptures on this delightful trail and new ones are always being added.

The trail winds north through woods, passing a disused ballfield and the Public Safety Building, to a tunnel under Peavine Road.

The trail passes by Mirror Lake with its fountain. This is the location of "Mirror Blast" concerts in the summer.

North of Mirror Lake the trail passes behind the Village Green Mall. Near the mall there is a branch in the trail to the Sterling Forest timeshare units.

The trail can be accessed from the Community Center using a path alongside the building.

Behind the Community Center the trail winds through the woods by a small creek.

Robin Hood Park is one of the many interesting destinations on this trail.

Along Stonehenge Drive the sidewalk trail dips down to reach the bridge across Dogleg Creek.
