“A wide gravel trail with a nearly constant incline.”— Xina Barkley
If you're coming up from the Bent Creek side, not long before the Parkway on your right there will be a spring coming up from the ground. It's a great place for your dogs to stop and get water.
During hunting seasons, it's advised to wear blaze orange or some other bright colors so that hunters can see you. Be sure that your dogs are also wearing bright colors.
You can turn this trail into a loop using Bent Creek Road and Old Mill Trail in the Arboretum. That loop is about 6.25 miles.
