This trail starts off New Lenox Road, at Gate 16. It follows the access road behind Gate 16 and runs southward to the junction with Roaring Brook Foot Path (on the corner). In a short distance, it crosses over a stream. Here, the trail follows in the flow of another stream then turns left to cross over a small footbridge. It passes by the Switchback Connector and the Felton Trail (both on the right). The trail traverses a rough stretch all the way to its end at Lenox-Whitney Place Road.
