This small network of trails totaling about half a mile explores the wooded area surrounding the south branch of the Long Creek as it flows between Clarks Pond Plaza and the Maine Mall. It also provides off-road connections between these shopping areas for people on foot. Short bridges over the brook and wooden steps are provided where necessary. See also the nearby Red Bank Trail and Clarks Pond Trail, both of which have trail heads within easy walking distance.
