Information The McIntosh Run Community Trail provides a peaceful walking and cycling route on a mostly flat, 3-4m wide trail. 
The Community Trail starts at Learning Lane/Levis Street in Spryfield, crosses the Run, and follows the south side of the McIntosh Run for 1.5km. The trail surface here is a mix of crusher-dust and asphalt. The trail then continues another 1 km to Roach’s Pond, with a rougher surface of gravel and larger stones.  
In addition to the start and finish points, the trail can be accessed midway at River Road, Drysdale Road, and via a pedestrian and bike bridge to the Governors Brook subdivision. 
In partnership with the JL Isley High School, MRWA holds an annual Run clean-up day along the Community Trail.
