“This trail transitions from packed gravel to smooth singletrack, with just a few roots.”— David Nixon
Family Friendly Not too difficult and walking is acceptable.
From the west, things start with a gravel greenway that wraps around the high school and its practice fields, before entering the first wooded area of singletrack. Stay to the right, but feel free to explore. There are quite a few good loops to the left that are used by the PH cross country team (hint - turn left at the park bench, then stay left when you come out in a field behind the office. You'll eventually find yourself back on the trails. Plus, since this is really land locked, it's hard to get too lost).
Continuing on this trail you'll eventually come out in a residential section and cross Brambleton Ave, before turning left and going down a long gravel trail. This trail is at times deep gravel and does shift around a bit due to it being in a flood zone. Once you enter the woods again, a sharp left then right awaits you. Be prepared for a very steep climb for 20' after you make the left. It's not uncommon to have to walk this section unless you are totally awesome.
At the top, you'll again transition into a gravel greenway, wrapping around two schools and through a playground, before ending the trail right at Colonial Avenue.
