Trail shared by John Shuttlesworth

A great trail to extend the Breckinridge experience.

This is a multi-use trail so pay attention for cyclists as they often utilize this trail as well.

Description

The trail starts at a footbridge on the northeast corner of the Breckinridge Trail, that passes over Rowlett Creek. Directly across the bridge there is access to the Breckinridge Backcountry Trail. Once the nicely paved path turns north, it then passes by a small lake on your right and a couple of parking lots on your left. It then proceeds under Renner Road where it continues eastward to Bradshaw Drive. Overall, it is a nice way to extend the trail from Breckinridge Park for some additional mileage.
