Description

This is a great woodland trail around Battleship Rock. You can make this a nice out and back or a neat short loop by combining it with the Original Trail, or make it into a super trail by coming up the Original Trail and then continuing along the Rock Garden Loop.

Flora & Fauna

Trees galore, normal small woodland creatures, ferns aplenty, and stunning hemlocks adorn this area.
