The trail can begin from a number of locations as the parking lot extends along much of the southern portion of this trail. This is a multi-use trail so pay attention for cyclists as some sections can be narrow.
The southern portion runs through the main part of Hoblitzelle Park and provides little to no shade on a sunny day. The northern portion of the trail runs along the forested banks of Russell Creek and provides great shade for those early afternoon runs. This trail is easily navigable and sees plenty of local foot traffic.
