Description

This is the longest of the three trails at Waller Mill Park and is mostly singletrack with little elevation gain/loss but lots of small ups and downs. The path is winding, and you'll find yourself changing direction many times during a run here. There are exposed roots, but overall it is a smooth trail with great views of Waller Mill Reservoir.

The trailheads is easy to locate and just south of the Dog Park. The beginning is a short stint on a singletrack path and the trail then meets a hardened bike path. Head left on the bike path, following the signs. The bike path parallels the road for a short distance to cross the reservoir. The trail then turns to the left to enter the woods with a sign to clearly mark the turn. You'll then complete a loop and head back on the same section when returning to the parking lot.
