Description

One of the park's more challenging trails, this trail winds through the woods with many rolling ups and downs. Along the way, you'll cross several small streams as the trail wind along the ridges and valleys before coming to a five-way junction with the Possum Loop Trail, Overlook Trail, Silent Journey, and Quarry Trail.
