The pathway ends at an old railroad embankment. At the top of the embankment is the Upper Falls Greenway, a walking and biking trail that extends a mile towards Newton Highlands. The City of Newton is planning to build a set of stairs to connect the pathway to the Greenway.

The pathway may someday become part of the Blue Heron Trail

Adjacent to the conservation area is the Saco Lowell Shops Housing Historic District.
