A lovely trail through the woods.

Description

The Sunny Brae portion of the Arcata Ridge Trail (ART) isn't yet connected to the main portion north of Fickle Hill Road, but it makes for a lovely run all on its own.

Climb the stairs from Margaret Lane next to the water tank, then follow the signs for the ART until you reach the sign marking the part that hasn't been constructed yet.

For much of the way, this trail crisscrosses a wider path/dirt road, and it doesn't really matter which one you run on, although I'd argue the ART is a nicer trail.

Once you pass the entrance to the one-way downhill trail, though, be sure to keep an eye out for the next left turn marked with an ART signpost, otherwise you'll wind up running the Beith Creek Loop instead (which isn't necessarily a bad thing).
