Runner Notes

Crossing Six Forks Road, at Newton Road, can be dangerous during peak hours.This trail connects to Shelley Lake Trail.

Description

This is a relaxing trail that starts at East Millbrook Middle School, and snakes along a creek. Once you exit the trail onto Newton Road, watch out for traffic as the trail has limited signage and crosses Six Forks Road. The crosswalk is not well marked, so beware of moving traffic. If you want to run the trail from the other direction, there is an excellent entrance along the Shelley Lake Trail.

Flora & Fauna

Small critters and ferns along the creek.
