Description

This short trail gets its difficulty rating from its climbing and descending nature. The first section tackles several mountain-side log steps. At the lower section, you'll have a couple water crossings to navigate before heading back up the other side for the main part of the trail. At first, the trail is kind of dense in the lower section, but as you climb back up a somewhat-steep trail, it opens up more on both sides.

Flora & Fauna

Oak, hickory, flowering dogwood, rhododendron, ferns, flowers, and mosses all grow in this area.

Animals in the area include black bears, white-tailed deer, reptiles, amphibians, wild turkey, wood peckers, warblers, eastern blue birds, and spring migratory songbirds to name a few. Brook, rainbow, and brown trout can be found in the rivers.

Hillside log stairs help keep the trail together on heavy rains and makes it easier for your descent, or climb depending on which way you are going.
