“This trail connects Hoyles Mill Trail to Schaeffer Farms Grand Tour.”— Chris Bingley
This trail features good downhill travel from Hoyles Mill Trail to the Schaeffer Farms network. There are a few rocky sections at the start, but quickly turns smooth. As you gradually descend, the trail switches between open fields and woods.
Watch for traffic as the trail crosses Schaeffer Rd once it starts to flattens out. Continue into Seneca Creek State Park where the trail intersects with the Schaeffer Farms Yellow Trail.
