Description

This trail is accessed from the Big Tree Trail. The trail surface is packed dirt with leaf litter. The trail is easily followed through the climax beech and maple forest. The trees are excellent with a great canopy. A spring comes out of the hillside forming a small creek. This trail is a recommended extension to the Big Tree Trail.
