Description

This trail starts off the end of the access road in the middle of Cole Field. It heads into the woods at a sign and passes by the Sandy Beach Spur (on the right). Here, there is a small box where you might find a paper map of the trails. The trail reaches a "V", where left will take you to Syndicate Road or right will continue on the main trail. The trail passes by Gravel Beach Spur (on the right), where a short trip will take you to a beach with good views of the river. The trail turns left to end at the Syndicate Road Connector.
