Trail-5 is located on a quiet corner of Islamabad just beyond the last police check post on Margalla Road, going towards the parliament. It is usually quite deserted as most of the Islooites like going to Trail-3, which has been there for as long as I can remember. But if you go there on a Sunday evening you will find a few people enjoying themselves in the stream that flows through it or having a lunch at the campsite. If you continue on the trail for about 2 km you will reach the point where you can either take a track back to Trail-3 or continue on wards towards Pir Sohawa. There are plenty of fresh water sources as you hike towards Pir Sohawa. The total hike time from the parking lot is about 2 hours and requires you to be in decent shape.
