Features River/Creek

Description

You can park at a gas station or restaurant near the 5th Street Station Parkway Trailhead, then head down on either side of the bridge as there is now an underpass that goes beneath it. Head north, keeping the creek on your right. Just under 1.5 miles in, you'll come to a small footbridge and just past that you'll have to cross the creek. This creek crossing is constantly changing, but there's almost always a way to pick your way across with dry feet. After crossing, turn right and continue to follow the trail until you come to Jordan Park, where there is also parking available.

From Jordan Park, follow the trail along the creek and head under Avon Street. You then begin the section of Quarry Park to Woolen Mills.
