This multi-use trail heads north through the woods, winding toward and then back away from Frederick road, eventually ending at Prescott Road. The trail is mostly a gentle downhill in this direction, but just remember if you are doing this as an out-and-back you'll have a gentle uphill on the way back.

The trail is open to runners, bikers, and equestrians. Be courteous to other trail users.
