“A small trail used by the school's cross-country team.”
— David Smith
Need to Know
The main trail isn't clearly marked; look for white or orange arrows on the ground. This trail may be closed down during XC events.
Starting off the north side of the road, the trail climbs moderately along the western edge of the soccer field. It passes by a piece of modern art, neglected and overgrown with Box Elders. At the north end, the trail turns left (still following the mowed path). Shortly after passing a viewing bench, the trail turns right to enter the woods. Near the summit of Phelp's Knoll, there is a side trail to the summit (*it was signed, but I don't remember the name). The trail descends down towards Sweetwood of Williamstown and turns left, following the woodline. It turns left back into the woods, passing by some weird silo thing. The trail reaches an intersection, where it follows the rock wall to the right. It comes out to the field, just north of the track. It hugs the edge of the woods, following the mowed path. It enters the woods again and follows the main path (mostly mulch). It loops around and ends when it comes back into the open. If looking at Google Maps, it hasn't updated to show that where this trail ends is a gravel pit/garden now.
