Comments: The actual path here is short, a paved trail that goes through a very nice neighborhood park with a lot of trees at Metric. I didn't cross Metric to go to Park Bend, although I could have.

When you walk this trail between Metric and Bittern Hollow, the paved trail forks at a Y. One branch goes to Metric, one goes to Bittern Hollow, and one goes to Lincolnshire (this is the shortest arm of the Y). Take the path to Lincolnshire 100ft, and you will see a trail dropping off to the left into the trees. That is the connector to the Walnut Creek park, which is much bigger and has unpaved trails. Watch out for mountain bikers on this trail. This cutoff is not very obvious, but it is the only path to the left off of the path to Linconshire.
