A pleasant ride along Fagan Creek.

Description

The Fagan Springs Trail runs from the end of Owens Drive to the Alms House Trail, along Fagan Creek, and by Fagan Springs, for which it was named. Of all the trails on this part of Monte Sano, this is one of the easier ones. Although it has some elevation gain, it is relatively wide and not as technical as the other trails in the vicinity, until you get close to the spring. As with all the trails on the mountain slopes, it is not as easy as the trails on the plateau in the State Park.

This trail can be combined with any of the other trails it intersects with as part a climb up to the top of the mountain.

Fagan Spring has some historic value as one of the springs on Monte Sano from which local residents obtained their water before the advent of public water systems. A brick wall impounds the spring outlet at the spring.
