Traveling on highway 1 north from Saint John take exit 137 onto St. Matins Road towards Rothesay. At the intersection across from the fire station turn left onto Campbell Drive. After 250 meters turn right onto Grove Avenue. After 1.2 km turn right onto Steele Street. Park in the parking lot at the end of the street. The trail starts on the right of the parking lot.


The trail enters the woods and steadily climbs a hill. The trail travels through a mainly softwood forest with some large spruce along the trail. There are several benches along the trail. At the top of the hill the trail turns and travels along the back of the Rothesay Elementary School. There is an access trail for the school and another one for the soccer and football fields. There is more hardwood on this side of the trail.

This trail makes a great place to take a quick walk in the woods in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the Town of Rothesay.
