Description

The Shagbark Hickory Trail is the only true singletrack at Mason Farm. It connects off of the Mason Farm Main Trail and then heads through the thick forest. Along the way, there are a few remnants of the old farm such as a tumbled down stone fence, a stone chimney, and some cut drainage ditches. The trail terminates at Parker Road, where you can doubleback or run home if you are lucky enough to live in the neighborhood.
