The Poplar Trail is a relatively new trail in the park. It follows an old road that leaves the old railbed trail, goes out to the edge of the wetland, and then loops back through the forest to the old railbed trail. Near the wetland it provides access to the Orchard Trail and crosses several Mountain Bike Trails. The trail travels through a mixed forest and is a nice place to take a walk in the woods.

After entering the parking lot, enter the woods on the Mountain Bike Trail on the left. This will take you across a stream and to the Poplar Trail.

You can also get to the trail on the old railbed trail that you cross when entering the parking lot (while facing the ballfield turn left). Follow this trail for 200 metres and you will see the Poplar Trail enter the woods on the right. After another 200 metres you will see the other end of the Poplar Trail on the right.
