The trail starts near the parking lot and proceeds for about half a mile around the park until it crosses a railroad track, and then an old bridge. We will then walk on parts of the white red and blue trails to form a loop inside a pine forest, between two creeks. Along the way we will see the ruins of the old Decatur waterworks, which were abandoned in the 1940's.
Part of the trail has been recently paved and a large new bridge and boardwalk built that cross the railroad track and overlook the old waterworks.

Required Items to Bring:
Water and good walking shoes.

2. Turn Left onto Mc Connell Drive and proceed about 0.1 mile to a stop sign.

3. Turn Right (to stay on McConnell) and drive about 100 yards further to the "Mason Mill Park" sign.
