This trail begins at the Dan River access parking lot, located at 1258 Flinchum Road. The trail's surface is dirt and sand. It is a mostly level loop trail that follows alongside the Dan River, past the "matrimony point" rock formation and the "play waves," before passing an old homesite. Keen hikers can spot old tobacco rows being erased by a tulip poplar forest.
