“A counter-clockwise route from the Watershed parking lot.”— Greg Bateman
From the SW parking lot, hear north on the Trillium Trail, taking a quick right onto the Powerline Trail before turning north again on the Pipeline Trail. Pipeline Trail is a well-maintained trail that is a wide, easy singletrack. Use the Pipeline Connector Trail to connect back up with the Trillium Trail which you'll then follow to the north end of the Watershed.
From Trillium Trail, hikers will use a short section of the Pond Connector Trail and Pipeline Trail to connect with the Siler's Mill Trail. This trail is great for hiking. Be careful of your step, as the middle and northern stretches of this trail are fairly rocky and contain a number of roots. Along this stretch, you'll also encounter a beautiful pond. The southern part of the trail is spectacular, as it winds through the dense Watershed forest.
Once you reach the junction with the Pipeline Trail, retrace your steps back to the parking area to finish up the hike.
