Of the trails that run above Lakeside Park and Murrow Park, this is the only one worth checking out. This is basically most of the red trail, then at one point you can cross through a stone wall past a Blair Witch sign on a tree. After a short walk through the woods you cross to Ralph's Wild Briar, a fun little narrow trail that snakes through the woods before depositing you on part of the Summit Trail, then ending at an abandoned farm house. There's also a cool old hollow tree near a picnic bench. According to the map the county provides there was once a ski tow at this location, but there is no longer any sign of it.
