The trail comes out on a road, briefly passing private property then turning right into a field before entering woods. It winds around and over a ravine on narrow wooden bridges. Farley, intimidated at first, soon became adept at this high-wire act. A few big sugar maple, red oak, and tulip trees dominate the woods. Go past the old factories that, long ago, made textiles, woodworking machinery, and high-wheeled bicycles.

Trail is mostly cinder paths and is broken up repeatedly with stairs going upwards & downwards very difficult for a bicyclist. Some pretty scenery but trail is better suited for a jogger.
