From the Trans Canada Trail to the northeast, the Carriage Road Trail starts by going under a large powerline. When I was there last there was a large Osprey on its nest on top of one of the power poles. Down in the valley to left there is a grassy wetland. On the other side of the powerline right-of-way the trail enters the woods and begins its steady climb. Near the top of the hill make sure you turn around to get a view of the city.
At the top of the hill the trail passes by the Pugsley Trail and then the Bypass Trail on the left, while passing a few rocky outcrops on the right. The trail eventually comes to a large intersection with the Zoo Trail. Turning left will take you out to the Fisher Lake Road. Turning right will take you through the heart of the park all the way to the parking lot near what used to be the Cherry Brook Zoo.
