The Bridges Trail has two possible entrances. One is behind the kiosk a short distance along the Glen trail. Go this way to access the longer Doctors Creek and Old Forge trails. The other entrance is to the left of the parking lot as you face the kiosk, near Emley’s Hill Road. Look for a partial wooden fence and a post marker indicating the Bridges trail. This entrance leads to a series of actively farmed fields. As you enter, the dirt path goes to the right (but you can walk around the fields in either direction). If you follow the dirt path to the right, the field is to your left and the woods, with a dense understory, are to your right.Following either route around the edge of the fields, you eventually come to the Imlaystown Lake area. There is private property to the left (west) of this area, which you must respect.

A line of maintained bluebird boxes placed around the fields to encourage bluebird nesting begins in this section and continues throughout the fields beyond where the Bridges trail turns into the woods. A post indicates the continuation of the Bridges trail into the woods. The trail makes a series of loops leading back to itself, or to the Glen trail and trailhead, or to the intersection of the Doctor’s Creek Trail and Old Forge trail. It is easy to get confused on this trail with all its branches and loops. It is strongly suggested that you take a trail map to guide you.
