(2012-03-30) This loop is a really easy walk.  Starting out at Coldbrook (x2) the trails takes you behind the houses on Richfield Ave and out to Salina Street, where a stone monument commemorates the Iroquois Trail.  You’ll also find an entrance point and benches near Salina Street as well.

(2012-03-30) I marked this upper trail moderate simply because of the crumbling trail face and its incline.  The trace back (end of trail) point is located at the fence near I-81.  Along the trail you can see the remains of a building foundation and access to a community garden.  Additional details are included in the resource link above.
