Formerly known as part of the Green Springs trail, the Cottontail trail is a short, 2-track, 0.6 mile connector trail to the Middleton Powerline trail with an elevation gain of about 135 feet. This easy trail offers a slightly shorter route (0.5 mile) to the Ice House trail than from the Mill Creek trailhead. As of June 2011, the trail may be accessed from the entrance to a gated community on Georgetown Drive via Green Springs Drive and Concord Parkway. About 200 yards east of the gates, an old 0.3 mile dirt road goes north to the Green Springs trailhead. As additional development occurs in this area on private land, access to the stepover on the boundary fence will change. The trail lies across lands administered by the Utah School and Institutional Trust Lands Administration.
