Runner Notes

This is a flat paved trail. There is no parking on the east end of the trail along Short Line Pike.

Description

From the city municipal utilities building on Harrison Road, the trail leaves the parking lot at the northeast end and parallels Brushy Fork to a bridge at the confluence of Brushy Fork and Silver Creek.

This confluence was the location of one of Daniel Boone's camps and it is likely this multiuse trail follows a portion of the historic Boone Trace.

From the confluence, the trail continues up Silver Creek along the edge of a field owned by the college and then runs along the rear of a residential development before ending at Short Line Pike.
