Description

This is a really simple trail that takes you through the locally famous Jessamine Creek Gorge. The trail isn't very long, but if you are looking to just get out in the morning, it's well shaded and will get you moving. In total, you'll get in just under 300 ft of elevation on the trail, which is sure to get the blood pumping before you stop and enjoy the spectacular views from the overlook.

Flora & Fauna

This trail is known for its abundance of wildflowers.
