Hike Rating: 6.6 km out and back 

Level 1: Mostly level single track packed dirt.

Enter the trail on the right side of the road with the GVTA signs, not the open field next to the house. Follow the trail in the woods around the fields and then enter the woods heading towards Mulligan Road. Cross Mulligan road and enter the woods again and come to a mowed pathway. Follow the pathway to just before the bridge, then follow the trail on the left next to Big Creek. Watch for beaver and muskrat signs here. This is a very quiet trail as there are no highways or major roads nearby and frequently deer, turkeys and foxes have been seen in the woods around the field.

NOTE: If you park on Mulligan road you can do the west section 1.4 km and the east section 1.9km
