Runner Notes

Once you get on the trail, just follow near the tracks!

Description

Take the Accontink Access Trail and veer off to the right to access the trail. This trail basically follows the train tracks so keep heading that way and follow along. This singletrack goes from the Accontink Access Trail to the Carrleigh Parkway Connector.

This is an undulating trail with a couple of short rocky sections. It is pretty rooty, so keep your eyes peeled. This is a popular mountain bike trail as well so be on the lookout for bikers. You can make a nice loop by adding the connecting section of the Lake Accotink Trail.
