Trail shared by Karl W

A long trail cutting through the middle of Schunnemunk mountain.

Description

This yellow-blazed trail starts at the Schunnemunck Trailhead parking area and runs along the Sweet Clover Trail for a short distance before turning west into the forest. You'll head through the forest for a bit before crossing the active rail road tracks. After the tracks, the trail quickly ascends Schunnemunck Mountain via a gully. It then goes over the broad north-south summit before slowly descending to the south.
