Notes and comments:

This is a pleasant walk, approximately 2.3 miles in length, on mostly level or gently sloping ground through attractive woodland. I thank Hubert C. Gray for providing information on this trail. At the northern end there are spectacular views over the valley. However, the trail does have some significant problems:

  1. It is not marked - you have to look for a slight depression in the ground, which is difficult to see in places, particulary when covered by leaves;
  2. A construction site interrupts the trail, so you have to search for the continuation of the trail;
  3. It includes three stream crossings, on somewhat wobbly stepping stones;
  4. It terminates on high and unguarded cliffs, which are a safety hazard;
  5. Between this trail and the short trail from Forest Park Drive to Falling Water Falls , there is a 15 foot high cliff; this is easy for agile people to scale, but would present a problem for some.
Update, June 2005 - according to a friend (thanks, Rebecca!), a fence around the construction site has now blocked the trail. If you find a way around it, or know of an alternative route, please let me know. In the meantime, you might not be able to hike the trail end-to-end.
