This trail connects on both ends to Trail 1. It is very hilly and has many dips and turns. The southern end of this trail is Drakes Pond, a small beaver-enlarged pond.

You can generally cross the pond, conditions permitting, or backtrack to ride around it, but beware of the short, steep hills in this section. At intersection 8, you can take Trail 4 back to Trail 1.
