This is my second review/visit to Memorial Park.  In my first visit, I logged the Color Coded Trails on the south side of Memorial Drive.  In this log, I will cover the Seymour Lieberman Exercise Trail and Powerline Trail, both of which are on the north side of Memorial Drive and on the east side of the railroad tracks.

The Seymour Lieberman Exercise Trail is a dirt/gravel exercise trail that loops around the Memorial Park Golf Course and is just under 3 miles in length.  It is a very popular trail amongst joggers and walkers.

The Powerline Trail is an unimproved dirt trail that passes underneath and along the high voltage powerlines that run close to and parallel to the train tracks.  This trail isn't particularly scenic, but it is another trail to hike.  It's about 0.75 miles in length or 1.5 miles round trip.
