“A very difficult trail featuring fantastic stone cuts.
— Luke Brisk
Cave · Wildflowers · Wildlife
When the snakes are out, the tunnel should be avoided.
From end to end the limestone formations comprise about a 1/8 of a mile of the trail, none of which are runnable.
Natural limestone formations have created an awesome path that makes the Stone Cuts one of the must-do trails in Monte Sano State Park.
The best route is starting from off the Sinks Trail
near the Three Benches. This intersection is where both the Keith Trail
and Stone Cuts Trail start. From here the trail inclines to the Stone Cuts. Just before reaching the formations the Stone Cuts bypass branches off to your left. A little bit further up the trail is where the Stone Cuts start.
The limestone has formed a cool tunnel you go through then under a tree that is leaning between two walls before spitting you out the other end.
After the "Cuts" the trail declines and is very rocky require some technical running skills for the rest of the trail. Near the 1/2 mile point, the Logan Point Trail
branches off to the north and at 0.65 miles Panther Knob Trail
does as well before ending at the Logan Point Trail
