Description

You can park on the street along the L'Hirondelle Club, cross over the metal bridge and it will be on your left. It is not marked, but you can see a short hill that drops down toward Roland Run at a break in the road barrier. The Blue Trail runs for nearly a mile between the water and nearby residences. On the weekend, you'll see quite a few dog walkers and trail runners, it's much more quiet during the week.

The trail can get very muddy after a few days of rain and takes a week to fully dry out. Many of the really bogged down areas have established workarounds, but there are a few spots where it is too narrow and you just have to plow through or head in. The start of the trail has two of these areas, but after that, all but one of the workarounds is to the left. They can be tight and twisty, primarily designed for the runners, but they are doable on a bike. You are also likely to see deer on the trail, particularly near dawn and dusk.

The Blue Trail ends at the doggy swimming hole with the Red Trail bridge above it.
