Located in the Eaglemont neighborhood of Mount Vernon, this short little out and back gravel trail delivers visitors through wetlands and past beaver ponds. 

The trail is steep for a short section, but largely friendly to all user types. The trail to the left past the bollards passes Beaver Pond then has a semi-steep decline into the woods. It is well maintained and often-used by locals and visitors.

It begins as grass, then changes to compacted gravel and in some places packed dirt. There are some wooden bridges along the trail, and though they may be a bit bouncy underfoot, they are sturdy. Overall, it's a fairly flat with slight ups and downs, though it does incline towards the neighborhood endings.

The very end of the trail is a  steep incline leading to a dead end street.

Note: There are two other trails at the start that appear to be legitimate trail heads, but lead to dead ends. One is behind the picnic shelter to the right. It is graveled and goes up the hill about 25 feet to a small opening. The second is left of the picnic shelter, past the bollards and to the right. This seems promising at first, but about 50 feet in, it narrows down to blackberry bushes.
