The trail is .7 miles long which includes the sidewalk extending to Lakewood Road, and it is well suited for walking and running. The newly updated trail surface is chip-and-seal, providing an easy trail experience for any user. The trail is located on land owned by the Stuart W.

This segment of the Rocky Branch Trail begins on Lakewood Road not far from Goat Island Park in Cramerton, and it transitions into the main stem of the Rocky Branch Trail just below the Stuart W. Cramer High School baseball fields where the trail extends to Belmont or Cramerton at Eagle Road.
