Runner Notes

Even gravel trail makes for easy running.

Description

The Cotton Mill Trail can be accessed where Erwin Rd dead ends on to 751. Turn right when you hit Mud Creek Trail and then turn right again when the trail comes close to the highway. The terrain is fairly moderate, though there are a few small rollers to keep things interesting.
