1.3 miles to Macadam Ave + 0.5 miles to eastern terminus of Trail 5, a total of 1.8 miles, compared to 1.5 miles for the closed section of Trail 5.

Description of detour west to east:
Start at the “Y” intersection between Boones Ferry Road and Terwilliger Boulevard. Go north by crossing Terwilliger at the stop light and enter 2nd Ave. After a block take a right on Ridge Rd and walk about 0.4 miles to Palatine Hill Road. Take a left on Palatine and walk one block to the intersection with Brugger St. There’s a trailhead on your right at this intersection leading east into River View Natural Area. Enter and walk a couple of hundred feet to a clearing from which several marked trails radiate out. Find Trail 6 and follow this for about 0.7 miles to Macadam Avenue/SR 43.
