Description

If you're looking for an uphill workout, this is an excellent trail. There is an overlook at about 0.6 miles with a good view of the valley around Cattail Pond and the overlook on Cattail Pond Trail across the valley. You can just make out the edge of Joe Pool Lake. Most of the trail is surrounded by brush and trees but it is quite beautiful.
