Description

For those looking for something a little different, this remote spur provides loads of scenery, a long climb (punctuated by a few descents) on a narrow trail through the hills of Black Mountain. This trail is runed as an out-and-back for those looking to tack on a solid extension to a loop run off High Point and Bones Trail. Be aware of fence crossings along the way.
