Description

At 1.2 miles long, this is the second longest trail in the park. The Blue Trail is a mix of single and doubletrack trail that is very technical and steep in places. The final .4 miles gains around 700 feet in elevation and is shared with the Red Trail, as it makes it's way to the observation deck. The Blue Trail passes over two small creeks with bridges and an old home site from the early 1900's.
