“A mostly wooded, multi-use trail that combines with the tunnel trail network.”— Brighton Loughlin
Later along the trail, you'll find a sign on a tree signifying the Zap Trail turnoff on your right, ignore it as you'll ride that segment of the Zap Trail on your way back. As you curl around through the dense forest, the trail will cross another old road. Continue across the road and take the Gateway Trail (the one on the right) as the sign identifies.
Then, you'll ride straight into the Tunnel Trail, as you'll see on a sign, turn left onto it and follow it as it leads up and right, don't turn left onto My Trail after your initial turn to the right. Shortly after, you'll see a trail going left with a sign signaling "Gateway Trail." Follow that trail up until you take a slight turn right on a slightly less clear trail climbing directly up the hill. That trail will tie you in with the main Gateway Trail you were on earlier as you head back on it the way you came.
