“A short connector trail leading visitors from the Visitor Center to the West Mountain Trail.”
— Mikhaila Redovian
Heading down or up this trail allows youngsters to imagine what it would be like to ride in (or drive) a horse drawn carriage.
This short trail is best used as an access point to the West Mountain Trail
. This trail begins near Central Avenue and the National Park Visitor Center, and heads southwest. You may have to head out on the Oak Trail
for a short while before this trail branches off to your right.
There will be one steep incline, but it is short and manageable. This historic path was originally constructed as part of a carriage road, and it's enjoyable to imagine carriages and horses rumbling down the path.
The trail comes to an end near the picnic area located at an intersection with the West Mountain Trail
