“This is a nice trail between Herrington Manor and Swallow Falls with some tricky sections to watch out for.
— JScott Holland
From Swallow Falls, you go through pines with some roots along the trail all along a creek. There are a few long, straight, smooth sections and two road crossings. The ascent is more gradual in this direction and easier, in my opinion. There are some other trails/intersections in this area to explore along the way.
