Here you will run up the switchbacks for the Tyler Potterfield Bridge and across the bridge over the railroad tracks to the back-side of the SunTrust Building and go under the Lee Bridge along Riverside Drive.

Turn right out of Reedy Creek on a series of trails back to the "dryway". Cross the "dryway" by rock hopping across the dry river bed to Belle Isle. Go up a steep trail and along the top of Belle Isle heading east and back down a major hill. At the base of the hill, cross over to the east trail of Belle Isle and back across the pedestrian footbridge to Tredegar Street and back east to finish in the Belle Isle Parking lot.
