This trail is situated between multiple neighborhoods, making it quite close to home. Despite its proximity to so many neighborhoods, the trail is often quite deserted.

This trail begins at a dog park and meanders alongside farm fields and creeks. Stay to the right at the first fork to begin the Mudsock Trail. The second fork in the trail results in a loop that meets up with itself and continues on. Depending on the amount of plant growth/season, there is a trail that cuts from one side of the loop to the other. This trail crosses Roberts Road and there are crosswalk markers with flashing lights to help get you safely across. This trail connects the Spindler Dog Park to Frank's Park.
