"Begin at the Coal Creek Parkway SE trailhead. After a short section on a wide, crushed gravel path, the treadway changes to a wide, hard-packed dirt trail, before narrowing further to singletrack trail. The majority of the trail is heavily forested and is flanked by Coal Creek, which is within earshot almost the entire route. Enjoy two waterfalls, cross several footbridges, ascend wooden steps, traverse switchbacks, return to some sections of crushed gravel, and reach the turnaround point at Red Town Trailhead after 2.5 miles.
On the return trip, you can take two deviations on side trails to experience other trails in the park. The first is the Interpretive Loop, on the left just 0.1 mile after the turnaround. This short loop crosses a footbridge and returns to the Coal Creek Trail in under 0.2 mile."
