“A rolling trail that takes visitors along the south shore of Lake Townsend.”— julie greene
Starting from the Southshore end, the trail winds its way through the woods until you reach a meadow with large power lines. From there, it's back in to the woods for a short downhill section before popping back out to the meadow. Once back in the woods you'll come across a small bridge before coming to a decently sized hill with rock steps.
From there the trail rolls along beside Lake Townsend before coming back out to the meadow by the lake. Take a sharp left back into the woods at the waters edge. The trail then continues by the lake with rolling hills until you reach Yanceyville Rd.
