The trail then continues down Howe Road to Mineral Springs Road heading South to Beam Street and turns East under I-94 to Sexton Avenue. At Sexton Avenue, a section of trail continues East to Wagner Road, while another section of the trail turns South and continues until it reaches Lincoln Avenue. The trail then heads East along Lincoln Avenue and terminates at Wagner Road in Porter, IN.
