“Half rails-to-trails and half trail through the forest.”— Christopher Rorden
The final four miles follow a former railway line, with a gravel doubletrack crossing nine trestle bridges. This portion provides a nice view of the swamps and creeks.
Note that you can also start at the Foxville Road Parking Area (see linked map, below) to only run the rails-to-trails doubletrack, which provides a good option for an easy run. A terrific PDF map with more details is available here.
