Trail shared by Kevin Ketchman

A very pretty trail along Squaw Run, with trillium blooms in the spring.

Description

The southern trailhead starts by crossing Squaw Run by way of stepping stones before climbing a staircase.

The trail winds along the hillside with a few vantage points of the Zen's Trail and Squaw Run below. The trail has a few sections with roots, but, in general, it is a very nice trail.
