There is an abrupt termination at Knight Road, but a short turn north will allow you to pick the trail immediately back up for the rest of your travels.

Hampton Township Nature Trail Reviews

This a nice easy trail to ride. Well maintained, with parking at both ends of the trail. The trailhead at the end of Jones Rd. has Porta-Jon's. Along the way I saw Red Squirrels, a dozen Box Turtles and the occasional Crains.

We access this trail at a junction point on Knight Road. It's a lovely trail along the way you can see red squirrels, chipmunks, turtles, lots of birds and maybe a deer.
