“A nice trail that heads up to Cobble Mountain and then loops back around the park.”— H Y
There is a small parking space for about 2 cars at the start of this blue-blazed trail heading up to Cobble Mountain. Once at the top of Cobble Mountain, you can continue on the Macedonia Ridge Trail all the way around the park, or opt to connect to any of the other park trails for a shorter outing.
The trail has several short but challenging steep ups and downs. These climbs, while short in length, gain a lot of elevation quickly and are, at times, very rocky. Take your time and watch your footing on the descents. In between the high points along the loop, you'll run in wooded valleys with various small streams and creeks that make for a scenic setting.
