Description

Enter the trail from Brown Road at the start of a section of guard rail. The trail follows a stream making several crossings. In spring, this section of trail is full of wildflowers.

The trail then makes a sharp turn, covering over 100 feet of gain in less than a quarter mile. At the top of the climb you'll come to a grassy patch of forest with a fork in the trail. The trail to the right is the North Trails section. Stay left to stay on the Spur Trail. From here, the trail dives, losing all the elevation gained in the same amount of distance.

You'll end at a Blue Door and the Braille Trail.

Flora & Fauna
