Description

The southern end of the trail begins at the end of Terrace Ave., at a gated road. The trail starts around the left side of the gate - follow a doubletrack for a short distance. Half way up the first hill the trail turns to singletrack and continues climbing until reaching a piney hilltop overlooking I-77. The trail then rolls across a saddle on the ridge intersecting a dirt service road. After a short distance, before reaching a radio tower the singletrack splits off on your right.

After a rolling descent, the trail crosses a small gravel road. Bear to the right and look for the trail approx 100ft on your left. The last portion on the singletrack empties onto a grassy doubletrack. Turn left onto the doubletrack. You'll come to two more intersections, go left at both of them. The trail opens into a mowed field. At this point, you'll have a visual on the intersection of Colegate Dr & Glendale Rd. This is the eastern section of the trail. The remainder of the North Hills Trail follows Glendale Rd (pavement approx .2 mi) with the singletrack dropping into the woods on your right. The trail terminates at the Frontier Shopping Center at Clifton St.
