“A winding pleasant journey cutting through South Mahlon Dickerson.”
— Lou Poulas
Features: Fall Colors
There are some sections of small, half buried rocks that may be prudent to slow down while crossing.
This blue-blazed trail in South Mahlon Dickerson is an interesting cut through, intersecting the Yellow Trail
and Highlands Trail (Teal). Intended to give the mountain biker a smile, this trail has many switchbacks that ensure a route that crosses the most exposed bedrock possible. Some runners may find the switchbacks a bit irritating as they are unnecessary, but enjoy it for what it is.
There is an enjoyable rock formation at mile mark 0.22, where the route eventually takes you to the top.
This trail is best when combined with other routes.
Flora & Fauna
On the day this route was recorded, I saw a young deer and a turkey. Vegetation-wise, this is your typical north Jersey hardwood forest, but there is also many areas of woodland grasses. Be extra careful of ticks here; in the 1.4 mile journey I pulled off six.
