Description: The good news: this was my last trail to complete to officially have hiked all ten trails within the Cherry Hill Trails system! Hooray!
The bad news: This was a bummer to end on. It’s pretty much a shortcut for the soccer teams to get from the high school to their playing fields.
The trees aren’t bad, but I’d take almost any other trail in the system over this one (except Earlton North Trails, which is like this minus the trees).
There are lots of frogs in the retention pond next to the playing fields, which would be more neat if they weren’t fenced in.
AND WE MADE IT! ALL TEN CHERRY HILL TRAILS!

Just nothing really here, its more of a cut through for the sports teams than a real trail.
As I noted on my reply to the Downs Farm trails, I was in the area yesterday, and also had time to check this one out. A nice little trail; nice blend of styles & scenery! I think the same dozen frogs were at the retention pond too; they all sort of “screamed” just before jumping into the water! The woods section (i.e. rocky path) was nice too…will probably even be nicer once the fall colors (which are starting to show) are in full force! While I didn’t actually get any pictures of the frogs, I did see some deer on both the high school athletic fields and near the soccer field back at Richterman Sports Complex. So, I’ve now completed 7 of the 10 Cherry Hill Trails! (Not bad for not being from the area!) Thanks for the review though; as always, excellent pix!
Almost there! Only 3 more to go (if Cherry Valley has trails yet, which it didn’t last time I was there).
Great to see you still hiking and introducing the next generation to the beauty of the Creation.
Thanks Dr Rough! It might not be the Appalachian Trail, but I do love taking my kids out in the woods as often as possible. Hope you’re enjoying the benefits of civilization!
