Description

This short yet intense trail starts in the Scout Ridge campground behind the large shelter-house.

The trail follows the side of the ridge briefly before dropping into a rugged hollow. Following a creek bed, the trail becomes tricky at times due to rocks and water. After crossing a wooden bridge, the trail starts climbing, passing through a rocky area before ending back at the shelter-house.

Don't be fooled by the short length of this trail. It is chock full of interesting sights and challenging natural features!
