“A natural-surface path from Clay Road at War Memorial to the eastern bank of Langham Creek.”— Bryan Dotson
The southern end is at the intersection of Clay Road and War Memorial. The trail begins directly north of the traffic signal. A bar ditch must be crossed and it can be impassable after rains. The southern two-thirds of the trail passes through tall trees and brush. On leaving the brush, follow the trampled grass to the Mary Helen Lee Trail near Langham Creek. The Wise Fox Cutoff is another option on the north end which may be less prone to mud.
According to US Army Corps of Engineers’ records, the land on the south end of this trail was owned by Henry J. Fox et al before the land was appropriated for the reservoir. That parcel was about 38 acres. The north end of the trail is on a tract of about 146 acres owned by R. E. Wise and his wife. Several other people owned land along this route between the Fox and Wise holdings.
