Description

This is a short trail that runs between the Wheaton Regional Park and Colesville road. It makes its way roughly parallel to the Rachel Carlson Greenway Trail from Brookside Gardens to Rte 29. The trail is on the western side of the creek and is open to both hikers and equestrians. The trail doesn't cross the stream at the beginning, unlike the Rachel Carlson Greenway Trail. At Colesville Road, the trail ends, but you can cross the road and meet up with the southern portion of the Rachel Carlson Greenway Trail.
