This portion of singletrack serves as a great access to/from the south side of Hartley Park. It can be accessed from the Hartley Rd (Old Hartley Rd) trailhead on the south side, and on the north side it terminates at the pine plantation.

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.

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

      Couple of low spots with deep mud. Appears to be the slowest draining part of Hartley.
