Description

This loop trail starts in the parking lot of the JMF campground, goes south and follows close to the campground road for about a mile before cutting into the woods via an old service road. A sudden left off the road leads to several large, steep accents with exhilarating descents. Keep an eye out for two creek crossings on a normally small creek that swells quickly with rain.
