Location: The trailhead is on Welch Rd. just east of M-109 near the entrance to Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive.
Parking Lot: Gravel
Restroom: No restroom is available. The nearest restroom is at the lower parking lot of the Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive, which is across the road.
Water: No drinking water is available
Trail Length: 1.5 mile loop
Terrain: The loop takes you through farm fields and after entering the woods, it goes up a gradual hill until you get a view of Glen Lake (best in the winter when the leaves don’t block the view). Then it’s a relatively steep downhill walk, which can be challenging if you’re on skis.
Trail Tread: Packed earth with some exposed roots creating uneven tread.
Difficulty: Moderate hiking and advanced skiing. The end of the trail has a section that is quite steep.
Comments: This trail is built on moraine – the remnant of the last glacier which deposited rocks, gravel, and sand to form this hill. This is a quiet trail with a nice view of Glen Lake. An interpretive display about soils on the trail.
