“This enjoyable winding trail is a great way to stretch your legs.”— Mikhaila Redovian
From Mountain Top you'll climb gradually over a short distance. Stop to enjoy the viewpoint looking east into George Washington National Forest. From there finish the climb and get ready for the long descent. Many find the use of trekking poles helpful, especially if you're trying to move quickly.
The trail is fun but has many switchbacks. Be aware of your speed going into turns. Nearing the bottom of the valley, you'll encounter eight rocky and wet crossings before reaching the swing bridge over Wilson Creek. Bounce your way across the bridge and then make your way out to Douthat Road.
