“A wooded singletrack with a couple creek crossings and old rock walls.”— Larry W. Brown
From here, head along for another two-thirds of a mile until the junction with Piney Branch Trail. The trail will bend abruptly across the Piney River, heading north and west, until heading back north and east after passing the Sugarloaf Trail.
This final ascent continues for a little under a mile until the trail ends at Keyser Run Road.
