The trail leads from Prairie Springs Park to Wilmot Road (County Highway C). During 2013, a culvert was installed at the north end of the trail in order to complete the connection. The path was built with recycled millings from 2011 roadwork in LakeView Corporate Park.

Prairie Springs Park offers Kenosha County's first park and ride lot (opened in Fall 2014). It's located in the southeast corner of the park and was made possible through cooperative efforts with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, Kenosha County and the Village of Pleasant Prairie. The lot will accommodate approximately 387 vehicles and is intended to promote and support carpooling opportunities.
