Description

The Seneca Connector starts as Hoyles Mill Trail where it is called the Diabase Trail and continues into Schaeffer Farms where it is referred to as the Red Trail. The trail is entirely singletrack with no trail junctions and a single road crossing.

This trail features good downhill travel from Hoyles Mill Trail to the Schaeffer Farms network. There are a few rocky sections at the start, but quickly turns to smooth flow. As you gradually descend, the trail switches between open fields and woods.

Watch for traffic as the trail crosses Schaeffer Rd once it starts to flattens out. Continue into Seneca Creek State Park where the trail intersects with the Schaeffer Farms Yellow Trail.
