Trail shared by Tim Haggerty

Once a logging route, this is now a backcountry singletrack trail.

Description

The trail connects to Huckleberry Trail (TR533), which leads up to Spruce Knob. From Spruce Knob, the trail descends towards Seneca Creek Trail (TR515) where it then climbs steeply up to Allegheny Mtn and back down.

The trail has tight sections, some steep grades, and a few creek crossings. The creek crossing near Seneca Creek Trail (TR515) can have high water; use your best judgement when/if crossing.
