Description

This trail branches off Carriage Road, shortly after the Outhouse Spur. It turns and crosses over Mary England Bridge to a fork in the trail. You can either continue straight through the tall grasses or take a right along the more obvious route. The trail follows a mowed path, then re-enters the woods.

At the south end of the loop, there's a small spur that leads to the top of a beaver dam. It runs northward past the Crossover Trail, following the water's edge. It passes through a scrubby meadow, with a few wildlife viewing opportunities. It pushes through some tall grasses back to the bridge. Cross over the bridge and turn right to get back to Carriage Road.
