Features Fall Colors · River/Creek · Wildlife

Hunting is allowed the Friday after Thanksgiving for 10 days, followed by the second weekend in January ONLY. Please avoid the area on these dates if at all possible to allow the hunters to do their thing.

Description

Parking is available at the trailhead on Hawkins Rd. Phase II is to begin pending county approval. This trail was built with support from AACo, Scenic Rivers Land Trust, MORE, MET, TrailWerks Cyclery, and Family Bike Shop. Major donors include Specialized Bicycle Company, Quality Bicycle Products, SRLT, Family Bike Shop, TrailWerks Cyclery, SC Logic, and Family Vet Clinic.

Parking is limited to around 10 cars at the entrance of the trailhead. The complete loop takes you back to the parking area. This trail is popular for mountain bikers to use but runners who are looking for a short run will also enjoy it. There is some traffic noise from Rt 97 toward the end of the run.
