Description

Two trails start at the end of the Wade Mountain Greenway. From that "T" intersection, the Fossil Bench Trail heads south and the Bostick Trail heads north.

The first part of the trail is an old, well-worn doubletrack logging road that ascends part way up Wade Mountain intersecting with the Wade Mountain Trail at 0.6 miles. There are some rocks and roots through section but nothing too challenging.

The character of the trail changes after 1 mile when it takes a hard right and starts back down toward Fossil Bench Trail. This is where the trail converts over to singletrack and becomes much more rocky. At 1.25 miles, there is a rock formation waterfall that after heavy rains and the wet season is quite the site. Though when it's dry it can be fun to climb around it.

At mile 1.4 the trail zigs and zags as it descends quickly to its end at the Fossil Bench Trail. This part is more of a fun run up than run down, so if you have the time, I would suggest heading south on the Fossil Bench Trail from the Wade Mountain Greenway to the Bostick Trail.

Waterfall and rock wall on the Bostick Trail.  When dry you can climb up to the top of it.

Great short hike. Limited elevation changes. Keep your eyes on the trail as we saw this monster timber rattlesnake on 7/1
