Description

This loop trail begins at Dogwood Shelter off of Hencken Road. The trail starts at the top of a ridge then quickly descends to the valley below. The trail climbs then climbs to the top of the ridge as it follows a seasonal creek. The north side of the hills along this trail are covered by numerous large Christmas Ferns.

This trail has some steep climbs and descents, but the wooded, sheltered valley is well worth the climb. The trail crosses a gravel road which leads to the site of the Greensfelders get-away cottage known as the Round House. The site provides a great vista of the surrounding hills. Dogwood Trail also connects with the DeClue Trail.
