Description

The northern Orange Trail trailhead is found about 500 feet east of the bridge on the Red Trail. It quickly leads you up into the forest. There will be wildlife, birds, and interesting flora to see during every season.

The singletrack trail is hard packed dirt that is full of roots and rock piles, so be mindful of your footing. Sections of the trail can get wet and muddy and you'll also find ice in the winter.

The ascent will get your heart pumping, but it is not too challenging. The trail ends when you come to a clearing in the woods and find yourself on the side of Falls Road.
