Overview

A tour of Fairland Recreation Park using Holly Trail, Crow's Foot Trail, and Viper Trail.

Description

The park contains natural and hard surface trails open to runners/hikers, bikers, and equestrians.
All of the trails can be accessed from the parking lot off of Greencastle Road. A left (north) turn at the fork off of the short access trail from the parking lot leads to Holly Trail and the Holly Trail Loop.

The Holly Trail descends to a stream crossing that is just before the Holly Trail Loop in the northernmost section of the park. After riding the loop, head back to do a loop on the Crow's Foot Trail. The Crow's Foot Trail leads to a boardwalk and obstacle area for bikers. The Crow's Foot Trail ends at Greencastle Rd, but picks back up again as the Viper Trail on the other side of the bridge (same side of the street). The Viper and Pine Trail loop will bring you back to Crow's Foot Loop Trail and the parking lot.
