Features: Birding — Fall Colors — River/Creek — Views — Wildlife
Dogs: Leashed

Description

From the parking lot, descend through the thick forest and take a right at the first intersection. You'll soon arrive at another intersection for the Spoon Branch/Rock Creek Connector where you want to stay to the left. Ascend along the side of the rock-strewn creek until you turn away from the creek and head uphill.

Dropping back downhill, you soon come upon another creek and some braided trails. Stay close to the creek as you pass the dam and the old mill, eventually coming to a crossing on a large bridge. Follow along on the flatter side of the creek and hit two more bridges until you are back where you started.
