The trail is closed when wet. The suggested day-use donation is $2 per runner and can be contributed at the trailhead.

Description

This casual doubletrack ends at a small creek at the eastern edge of the Whiterock Conservancy. From the Main Loop Trail, it travels through woodlands, reconstructed prairie, and a sedge meadow above the Middle Raccoon River. This is a great option if you want to explore some more or add a little mileage to your day in Whiterock.
