The trail provides a connection from CR 42 to Gossard Parkway in response to requests from residents for an alternate west side path until a long-term planned US 40 sidewalk or core trail extension gets built. While a bit rough and hilly, the trail offers an alternate route to town from US 40. The backcountry trail is on a temporary easement from the property owners and passes completely through private property. Help keep this trail available by staying on the trail (this means your dogs too). Another reason to stay on the trail is it passes near the gun range property - stay on the trail to avoid potential hazards. The trail is for non-motorized use only.
This is a temporary, back country trail. May be impassible when wet.
