Trail shared by David Kutassy

Run alongside Preddy Creek.

Features River/Creek · Swimming

Closes as dusk everyday.

Multi-use trails, please be respectful of other users and stay alert while on the trails.

Description

This trail branches off from Preddy Creek Loop and follows right along the creek. There are sand bars to hang out on to take a break and enjoy the scenery. The creek is shallow, so it's no swimming destination, but it's a great place for a dip to cool off. Once and a while you'll see a small beaver in the creek or somewhere alongside it. At the trail entrance near Mundy Place Trail, there is an old home site to check out. The foundation and stone chimney are still there.

WARNING: All though this is an easy and flat trail near the creek. From the home site side of the trail, entry is a very difficult, rooted, rocky and washed out downhill. The section is only about 100ft long.
