This portion of singletrack serves as a great access to/from the south side of Hartley Park. I can be accessed from the Hartley Rd (Old Hartley Rd) trailhead on the south side, and on the north side is circumvents the "rock knob" (bedrock knob with great views from atop).

Because this trail crosses a wetland, it is more susceptible to wetness and takes longer to dry out. Please exercise good judgment: if you're tires are leaving ruts, it's too wet to ride.

1) two-way mountain bike traffic
2) multi-use trail (yield to pedestrians)
