Crossword Genius

Follow — path (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

trail

I believe this clue is a double definition.

'follow' is the first definition.
(thesaurus)

'path' is the second definition.
(trail is a kind of path)

(Other definitions for trail that I've seen before include "Wake" , "Scent or track followed in hunting" , "Be losing; track" , "Track, route" , "Get behind" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
