Parks historically have been created and preserved because of exceptional beauty of the land's physical features. Bowie Nature Park is an exception. Land like Bowie Nature Park is typically used for farmland, pastureland or is otherwise developed, and simply isn't preserved. And this land was used for the above at one time and became eroded, but thanks to Evangeline Bowie and her two sisters, this land was rehabilitated and deeded to the city of Fairview, which now runs it as a park. And now we have a fine slice of Midstate land to enjoy. The Perimeter trail is great for hikers wanting to extend their trips but don't want to get on something too tough.
The Perimeter Trail makes a loop along the edge of the 800-acre park. Though you may not always get a feel of being in the wilds, the fields and woods of the park are ideal habitat for wildlife. The trail is a mixture of old woods roads and single-track trail. Quiet hikers in early mornings and evenings are likely to spot deer that roam the park. As much of the path is not canopied, I recommend hiking here during fall, winter and spring, as summer can be hot. Also, be apprised that the trail can close after rainy times, so call the above number to make sure the trail is open. The trail is open not only to hikers but mountain bikers -- they may be using the trail. I have never had a problem with them as they pedal the path, but I would listen for them on weekend hikes.
