Good epilogue to your cycling day if you're parked at the huge Glennfield parking lot. Short fast little ride whipping between small trees and shrubs. John Glenn's pioneer home was a short distance from this trail (stones throw from Macleod Trail with Shaw's Mill directly west of his home) and he probably walked this trail many times 150 years ago while fishing, bathing, and bringing water back to his cabin.

Access Info

As you return to Glennfield and cross under Macleod Trail, you'll see a little single track off to the left. Follow it. Leads to a gravel path that will take you back to the parking lot if you're done finding trails for the day.
