Description

This horse trail can be used as an alternate route that runs alongside the AT: Potomac Appalachian Trail Club (PA/MD/VA/WV) and the Stony Man Trail. This trail can be somewhat overgrown during the warmer months but provides access to one of the best views in the park at the Stony Man Mountain Overlook.
