We will hike a recently opened trail on that part of Cochran Mill Park that is west of Cochran Mill Parkway. The trail runs deep into the forest. After reaching Bear Creek it follows it downstream until Henry Mills Falls. It then climbs the hills and loops back. The trail is well marked, there is little elevation change, and hardly any mud. I have often seen deer in this area.
