Description

The Mountain Orchard Trail is a short sampler that showcases what the rest of the trails at Mint Springs are all about. There are some steep climbs, difficult roots, and a few rocky sections. Beginners might need to watch their footing in a few sections, but I wouldn't discourage anyone from running this trail.
