This trail is shared with horses.

Description

This short trail starts in open fields, but soon enters the forest and climbs to the top of Buttermilk Hill. From the top it becomes the Laurance's Ridge Trail. The high point is a small trail up to the left as the main trail crests the hill. This is marked as "Parking 2".

Flora & Fauna

Standard deciduous forest.
