Description

This trail is a roller coaster. After starting from Upper CCC Trail, the trail quickly descends to a shallow creek crossing and then begins a climb to the intersection of the Chestnut Knob Trail. From there, it is one steep downhill followed by a steep uphill, then repeat until reaching the junction with Horseridge Trail. There is a good overlook about midway into the trail with great views of the park landscape.

A good place to rest. There is a picnic table to sit and glaze the South Mountains around this point.
