Description

This trail starts from the dirt lot and winds north up Swan Creek. In the middle of this route, a water crossing and a steep climb are required to reach the Bald Knob Trail. From there, this trail descends into the Math Branch of Swan Creek and generally follows the course of the branch valley. It eventually climbs upwards to meet the South Tin Top Trail. It is a dirt track with possible creek crossings.

Note: There are many closed and well traveled common trails which are outside of this map. The trails are denoted with occasional white diamond blazes and a 4 digit number for the section (6101).
