Overview

This is a good loop with some steady elevation change and is durable and not sloppy during rainy days.

Runner Notes

A gravel road that is closed cars. It is a 80% forested for cooler temps.

Description

You'll start out on the Concrete Bridge Road in Loblolly pine forest and then slowly descends to the creek where the forest turns to mixed hardwoods with some Beech trees mixed in near the streams bottom. At this point, you cross the low titular bridge and trend uphill until you until you get to Wooden Bridge Road where you take a left. When the trail dead ends, take a left where you trend downhill until you get to the 'Wooden Bridge.' You'll be going uphill through some lovely forest until you are back on Whitfield Road. Go left on the faint roadside trail to get back to your car.

Flora & Fauna

Mixed pine and hardwood forest.
