A segment of this trail will continue south on 18th Street to connect to Pat’s alley, while an 8’ wide path continues east towards 15th Street on Avenue B. The trail then extends north on 15th Street on the west side of the road, and again widens to 10’. Once the trail meets 302nd Avenue, it will follow the slight bend continuing past the Gethsemane Cemetery, through Rodeo Park, and will connect with the existing Rodeo Park trail system north of the Rodeo Arena.
