Description

The Mansion Trail, along with the Caretaker Trail, make up a singletrack loop into the southernmost portion of Mountwood Park. It visits the remaining sandstone foundations of homes and other structures once owned by early oil industrialist W. C. Stiles. From south to north, it is a gradual climb; north to south, it is a twisty, flowing downhill.
