Runner Notes

Make sure you know the access point and your plans for descent or link-up as the trail is not marked.

Description

This is not a marked trail but a moderate ascent/descent from town up into the foothills. It is usually linked with the more interesting Mineral Springs Trail (T5597).

Starting from the bottom access point, you'll climb on moderate rocky terrain until you hit the steeper climbs as you approach the top of the trail. The steep sections include some limestone slab that is pretty cool.

The link up to the Mineral Springs Trail is on the left at the top of the trail. It is not marked.
