From the west end, the trail turns to the left from the Rails to River Trail
. After a creek crossing, the trail climbs steadily with occasional grade reversals. Near the midway point, the trail surface becomes rocky.
Around the three-quarters mark, there's a small rock roll followed by a rocky connector that leads to the Rails to River Trail
on the left. Continuing to the right will take runners to another fork. Turning left at this fork will take the runner down a somewhat steep chute and onto Rails to River Trail
near its intersection with South Side Trail
singletrack. Taking a right will bring runners close to the end of the South Side Trail
