Frog Hollow Boardwalk

There is a solo boardwalk between the JJMS field and the Pit Field where the ground is saturated and always muddy. See original survey map included with this 2015 article for location.

Final Link Bridge and Boardwalks

The Final Link Trail goes uphill 1/4 mile from the far side of Bridge 3 up to the John Jay Contest Field, on the south side of the ravine. It traverses the school district-owned woods behind the Meadows Condominiums and the Orchard Square Shopping Center.

  • Bridge 3 aka “The Championship Bridge” (started July 2019, foundations in place, construction underway.)

One boardwalk will be necessary on this final trail segment which was cut and cleared in September 2019.
