A loose, flow-happy trail along the road. A great connector trail.

Description

This is a great alternative to using Conservation road. From several turn outs you can bail out on it if it gets too soft.....

It is easy to snatch this trail right off Pioneer Trail on the east side of the Conservation Rd. crossover. I like to climb Harmony trail to Dascombe Loop Trail, then to Pioneer Trail, then down Pfeiffer and back onto Dascombe to loop back around.

The trail is a no brainer as it follows the road it's entire length, except for where it goes right paralleling a dirt road that is opposite Rock Creek Rd. Taking this section "steeply" down for 3 tenths of a mile means you'll have to climb back out. I always bail out at Rock Creek Rd.
