We will hike a lollipop shaped trail which lies mostly on that part of Cochran Mill Park that is West of Cochran Mill Parkway. The trail follows a course downstream, meandering at some distance from Bear Creek, until it reaches Henry Mills Falls at mile 5. After having lunch at the falls we will return to our cars, walking upstream along the creek for about 2.2 miles until we reach the section of trail where we came in. The trail is well marked, there are around 350 ft of elevation change, and little mud.
