Description

This trail starts at the intersection with Trout Brook Trail, crossing the Willow River and traversing the northern part of the park. After running through forest, you'll come to the Nelson Farm area, which is adjacent to wetlands and views of Little Falls Lake. The trail then follows the river to a junction with the Burkhardt Trail.

While the grade is relatively moderate throughout, there are a few hilly sections.
