From the parking area at the highway near Arby's to VanDerVolgen Overlook and Rest Area, this interesting trail has heritage dating back to the early part of this century. Commuter electric trains, called "Interurbans," ran on narrow tracks along the elevated portions of the trail. The trains ceased operation in the 1930s. The VanDerVolgen Rest, named for the Canal Park's beloved late blacksmith, is on the high pillar of a bridge abutment overlooking Deer Creek and the beautiful Deer Creek Falls.

Happy Jack's Loop - .5 mile - 11 on the Trails Map

Branching off the Interurban Trail at the site of the old Smith Dairy Farm, this trail continues to Deer Creek Falls. It passes by the site where Carroll County Court was first held in Daniel Baum's cabin in 1828. This beautiful trail loops along the north bank of Deer Creek and rejoins the Interurban Trail at the east end of the Robbins Trail across from Deer Creek Falls. The return to Trailhead Park and the suspension bridge is by the Robbins Trail.
