“A short, paved trail through a suburban neighborhood.”— Jim Johannsen
After crossing the river, switchback under the Harlem Road Bridge again and continue east along the path. At Victory Lane, the trail turns north and becomes a city sidewalk. Continue along Victory Lane for about 0.6 miles. At Roosevelt Road, the trail becomes a pedestrian path again and turns east. Continue east, being careful at the U.S. Highway 251 crosswalk, until you reach the Harlem Community Center.
The trail actually continues a little past the community center before it ends at the intersection of Scott Lane and Roosevelt Road.
