Description

From the trailhead, follow the easy to find red blazes along the creek. Enjoy a nice photo opportunity as you pass the old ruined mill. After you pass the mill, the trail becomes a little more difficult with light scrambling over small to medium sized rocks, and a couple stair assisted ascents. The trail is 2.4 miles in total. Once you reach an intersection with the White Trail, return the way you came, or extend your journey by finishing a loop on that trail.
