“A short run on this red-blazed trail through the forest with views of a mountainside on your right.”

The trailhead for Swamp Trail (red blazes) is located at the shelter area and parking lot, to the south of the park office.
From the parking area, the trail is joined by the Summit Trail
, and they continue together for 0.15 miles as you begin climbing the side of the ridge. After the Summit Trail
turns right, you keep left and continue for another 0.35 miles on the Swamp Trail. This trail ends at camping area (#18). The trail is almost flat with only 135 ft of ascent. You'll see a mountainside on the right-hand side.
