“A scenic trail with overlooks of Mud Creek.”— Josh Moore
A scenic run with soaring overlooks of Mud Creek, this trail is at times very narrow and not well-defined. You'll make your through pine trees only shoulder width apart at times, and have a few short but steep descents or ascents. Rain can make some the steeper sections quite slippery and even with good shoes it is advisable to grip the close-by trees for extra stability.
The sound of running water from Mud Creek adds a cathartic element to this run, and you'll find yourself at a picturesque little waterfall near the trail's midpoint.
