the residents with nature as it
winds through many pristine undeveloped areas
of the resort. The trail is appropriately

black beak. Both the male and
the female have a curved black
crown feather on their foreheads.
The male's crown feather is larger
than the female's. They are abundant
in the foothills and like areas
with lots of brush. There is a

them during your walk along the

biking only. The trail is connected
to the improved walks within the
neighborhoods and will change as the community grows.
