Runner Notes

Due to the fair number of rocks and two sections of steep inclines/declines this wouldn't be a bad run but you need to use appropriate caution.

Description

A nice, tree covered trail with a few steep inclines over Lost Mountain. The trail starts at the bench that is part of the Rolling Meadows Trail and continues up to the park boundary on the shoulders of Lost Mountain. At the first summit you have a nice view back across the valley to the other parts of Sky Meadows State Park including a section very close to the Appalachian Trail (AT).

Flora & Fauna

A lot of normal eastern U.S. trees as well as some nice mountain flowers (not sure the name) line this trail.
