Runner Notes

Many sections have rocks and roots sticking up, but don't let it stop you.

Description

You can access this trail from Ridgeline Trail, Hilltop Trail, or Church Trail. The Hilltop Trail and Ridgeline Trail having free parking. At one point, the trail will cross a road (that leads to a tower at the top of the mountain), but there is a button to activate flashing lights to stop any vehicles. There are no real overlooks or scenic viewpoints, so it's mainly good for trail running or just hiking. There are a few areas on the northern side that cross small creeks, but the trail is mostly non-technical. There are a few rolling sections, and at times the trail descends/ascends a bit steeply, but those portions are short lived, and overall this is a gentle trail.

Flora & Fauna

Mostly evergreens and native Georgia trees (oaks, etc.)
