This is a winding, singletrack trail through the woods, marked with white blazes. It ends on Sawmill Road which will lead you to the covered bridge and back to Harmony Hill.

The trail starts at the old train bed above Harmony Hill, and then winds through the woods with climbs and logs that make it interesting. The trail gets narrow on occasion, and with the steep hill below, it may not be for timid or new riders. After winding through the woods, it passes along the edge of Bradford Elementary School, before continuing through the woods again (come out of the woods, stay to the left and follow the tree line until the singletrack starts again).

After the school, the path follows along a stream and runoff bed, with some fun narrow singletrack above the stream, before dropping you onto Sawmill Road. Sawmill is a dirt road, but cars do occasionally drive it. The trail continues to the left down Sawmill Road, which will put you onto Old Shadyside Rd and 322. A quick dash down the road takes you to the covered bridge, which links you back to Harmony Hill.
