A poorly defined trail that skirts the edge of the wetlands

Description

Starting off on the Little Creek Trail, the trail skirts the edge of a subdivision. In many spots the trail is seems to disappear but you just need to look for the blue blazes on trees to keep your way. The first mile of the trail ends at the seasonal parking lot. From here the trail changes character as it becomes a broad doubletrack. Shortly you cross a barrier and then stroll along the edge of a pond which often contains lots of waterfowl. The trail deadends at the Slopes Loop Trail.
