Description: This popular jogging/walking path is off the road on its own paved path for safety for part of section #4.1.

One block to the north, trail users can access the Lagoon portion of the Farmington Creek Trail (#11.4).
South of Glovers Lane (925 S.), the trail heads toward Centerville on the east side of the frontage road along a sidewalk. The trail parallels the frontage road, allowing easy on and off access. You will pass the Davis Creek Trail (#18.11) on your left.

There is a large map on a trails kiosk at the south end of the park that shows the entire Farmington area trail system. The trail proceeds north from here along a sidewalk. You will pass the Davis Creek Trail Urban Nature Walk (#18.11) just before you reach Glovers Lane.
