“A mile and a half of hilly terrain, wooded trail and sometimes pretty thick ground cover.”— chris kilgore
Features Birding · Fall Colors · Lake · River/Creek · Spring · Swimming · Views · Wildflowers · Wildlife
The trail itself is situated in an area of the park where most visitors don't go, so you're likely to have this trail entirely to yourself, save for the deer, turkeys, and other woodland creatures. It's a good segue between the North Shore Trail and either the Beach to Dam Trail or a spillway crossing to the McBride Nature Recreation Area (MNRA) trails.
