Description

Matthew's Brook Trails are made up of several trails that criss-cross through the patch of forest to the east of the Q-Plex. They travel along the brook and cross it on several small bridges. The trail goes through a walking tunnel under the road to access the Homestar Dog Park and a loop trail through the woods around the dog park. Near the back of the race track the trail passes by the Tir na nog Forest School. The trails climb a slight grade towards the dog park. One of the trails travels along Randy Jones Way (Q-Plex Road) to access the Saunder's Brook Trail.
