Trail shared by Jeremy Ruckel

A trail that follows close to Caney Creek in the woods

Features Fall Colors · River/Creek

Description

This is a moderate trail that follows along Caney Creek. Runners in the area can connect this one to the Buckeye Trail to make a nice loop. No matter which end you start from, there are several creek crossings. The trail is hard to follow at times due to the amount of leaves on the ground and creek crossings. There are lots of big trees, which means you'll be well shaded most of the time. There are also plenty of opportunities for refilling water and camping if you want to extend your visit.
