Overview

Hike on this mostly flat trail, with only a few hills. This hike is quiet and rambles through forest and meadows. Some of the forests are full of interesting vines while other sections are mature with little underbrush.

Need to Know

This trail is a shared-use trail with bicycles, so stay alert.

Description

The trail begins at the parking lot near the old Whitely Farms. This singletrack loop trail rambles through hayfields and a forest of mature hardwoods over a packed dirt surface. The grade is moderate throughout, with a rapid descent near the approach of the Hopkins Road crossing and the connector to the David English Trail.

The Whitely Farms Trail can also be accessed by a connector trail near the Smith Mill Road Parking Area. This trail is a doubletrack cut-off that runs downhill parallel to a small creek from Possum Hill to Hopkins Road.
