Description
Waypoints (0)

Nice walk for kids, trail is right off the parking lot so it’s very accessible and not a lot of time wasted getting into the woods. If you go to the top of the trail there is a nice view of the surrounding mountains and equestrian center. There are three more trails at the park if you would like to make a longer trip: Craig’s Climb, Walton’s Way, and Meadow View.

HikingClosed

Update Dec 19, 2020: Pawpaw Trail is closed for maintenance. Also, the parking area shown on the map has 'No Parking' signs. You will need to use the main park entrance (right turn after crossing the train tracks) and park in one of the few different lots if you want to use the other parts of the Greenhill trail system.

I only did the out not the out and back of PawPaw Trail, since I was walking around Greenhill Park; however, I wanted to capture this while I was here. I also wanted to note there are three more trails at the park: Craig’s Climb, Walton’s Way, and Meadow View. I will go back and capture those soon.

HikingGreat!

Nice walk for kids, trail is right off the parking lot so it’s very accessible and not a lot of time wasted getting into the woods. It connects to other small trails like Craig Climb and if you go to the top of the trail there is a nice view of the surrounding mountains and equestrian center.

Great little hike. Go all the way back to the back of green hill park where the soccer fields are, and you’ll see the entrance. There are actually 3. One by the main sign, one by the end of the concrete road, and another by the end of the trail. It’s an out and back. Super easy.

First to Review

Great pit stop for an I81 drive. Had Porta-potties, nice open fields to let dogs run, and paths to stretch your legs.
