“A multi-use trail with some roots, few rocks, and little elevation changes.”— Timothy Parrish
Family Friendly Trail has very few technical features. Wide enough in areas for side-by-side riding. Little to no grade.
This trail is marked with plastic gray squares/diamonds nailed to the trees all along the route. The main entrance for this trail is at the Butch Kennedy trailhead found across the road from the T. Ed Garrison Arena directly off Woodburn Road. To access the trail, ride down the grassy hill toward the entrance bridge from the kiosks. At this point, the trail is three trails: Red Square Trail, Green Triangle Trail, and Gray Diamond Trail. Continue on this trail and up the climb until you cross the first paved street. Once across the street, stay to the right.
The Red Square Trail will drop off to the left and you'll remain on the Green Triangle Trail and Gray Diamond Trail for an additional distance. After crossing a second paved road, you'll reach intersection A15. The Green Triangle Trail will continue to the right and the Gray Diamond Trail will continue on to the left. Take a left turn. On this route, you'll ride through dense hardwood forests and/or pine forests. Due to limited use, some portions of the trail trail may be difficult to see in late fall/early winter. Leaf litter at times may be deep. There are four street crossings so be aware of traffic in these areas.
This trail probably has the most climbs of the four trails in this system. Most of the climbs are gradual, but there are a few steep switchback climbs some riders may have to dismount and push up. There are two very small water crossings and three or four wooden bridges with rubber pads built for horses. A short section of this trail near the end at intersection marker B30 becomes a forest road.
After this forest road crosses a paved street, you make a right turn to ride back over the entrance bridge and back to the trailhead parking area. There are not very many roots, rocks, or technical features on this trail. Printed trail maps, courtesy of the local equestrian club, are usually available at the kiosk at the trailhead.
