This trail is primarily intended to be a connector between the Mountain Lakes area and Woodfield Reservation. It connects with the Stuart Trail running from The Great Road to Mountain Lakes North, but the section from The Great Road to the PDS parking lot is currently (November, 2008) unusable, and hikers should instead parallel the route along the edge of the road (see description below). This situation will hopefully be corrected in 2009.
