Description

Start at the corner of River Road and Route 250. The trail is hard-surfaced until you reach the fields. After entering the woods, veer left in the direction of River Road, taking a right onto it, followed by a right onto Locust Avenue. Eventually, you'll take a left onto Locust Lane, followed by an immediate right onto Megan Court —look for the trailhead sign on your right. You'll enter forest again, drop down a hill, and continue along Meadow Creek.
