Google Maps of Parking:

I had never been to Kennedy Dells Park before, and was looking for a short and easy hike that wasn't too dramatic. I parked in the main parking area by the trailhead, and took the Service Path for a short distance to the White Trail. The White Trail loops around most of the park, going north and then west along the northern edge of the park to the other entrance. I then continued south on the trail at the western edge of the park alongside the brook. I missed the famous dam and waterfall and was not familiar with where it was. I then continued along the trail to its terminus. I then took the path south towards the entrance, and then took the Fitness Trail to the parking area, and then walked from the other parking area to where I was parked.
