Comments: Started at the trail head for Kirby Nature trail and took left turn to head towards Cypress Loop. See Pictures. When we reached Village Creek we headed north on the Turkey Creek Trail to trail head of the Sand Hill Loop trail. Sand Hill loop is more of a desert area. Some Long Leaf Pine Trees in area. Completed loop and headed south on Turkey Creek trail back to Kirby Nature Trail, turned east and followed outer loop. Inner loop was shorter, but map indicated wet at one of bridges so we figured mosquitos. We will hike inner loop next time to see.
