Family Friendly Kids can easily tackle this trail's mellow grades and smooth surface.

Description

The Tear-Thumb Trail is a great trail for those looking to get outside and enjoy beautiful woodlands without having to navigate an obstacle-ridden singletrack trail. This trail can be tackled by young and old alike and is sure to leave a smile on everyone's face.

Starting at the eastern junction with the Main Trail, follow the doubletrack path west as it parallels the preserve's property line. Upon reaching an intersection with Kearney Road, simply cross the road and pick up the trail on the other side. From here, it's smooth sailing to the trail's end in a "T" intersection with the Main Trail.
