“A great trail on a ridgeline leading over the Devil's Backbone.”— Chris Davis
At about 0.75 mile in, the trail begins to follow the Devil's Backbone, a tight and narrow ridge; at one point the trail is as wide as the ridge itself. The ridge climbs gently until you meet Shortleaf Pine Trail. Either use this as a connecting trail to make a nice loop back to Telegraph Trail by turning left, or continue on to the right to meet Artillery Trail.
