Runner Notes

Fairly rocky once the trail begins its steep ascent which mostly takes place in a dry creek bed.

Description

Starting out at the parking lot on Dockery Lake Road, this trail follows the length of Dockery Lake, then eventually works its way down to a creek in the woods.

The trail will parallel this creek for about a mile. This section is a gentle descent with about 5 stream crossings. While following the stream, there are also a few small waterfalls.

Eventually, It breaks away from following the stream where the trail begins its steep ascent towards the Appalachian Trail. This section is about 2 miles long and follows a dry creek bed which is fairly rocky. Once at the top the trail connects to the Appalachian Trail at the ridge line.
