At first I was confused about the paved walkway that runs parallel to Hiddenbrooke Lane, but the trailhead breaks off to the right and into the hills after a short distance.
I jogged most of the way to the summit and back down (except the steeper hills and areas where I had to tread lightly over stickers) and opted to turn left at the top and head back down via switchbacks where the trail meets back up with the road farther up.
Once at the summit, housing development comes into view and it's an interesting contrast to the cows and grass and hills you just came through.
It worked well for me to end the run with pavement because by this time I was hot and tired and grateful for the shade offered by the planted trees alongside so I just moseyed back to the parking area.
Will be back!

Good stuff! Was muddy when we went. Great views!

Great workout, easy to follow trail, amazing views.

This looked like a great run but I couldn't find a trailhead. I found a gated road along Newell that worked but it sounded like an official trail?!?!
