“Awesome Loop for some great Cranberry Wilderness scenery!”— Jamie Singleton
Run down Cranberry Road a couple miles and take the Tumbling Rock Trail #214 as it climbs back up to the North-South Trail #688 along the creek. It is only about 2.5 miles uphill, but it feels more like five miles uphill. The trail is an old railroad grade from the turn of the century and offers a great historical experience as some of the railroad timbers are still on the trail. At the intersection with the North-South Trail #688, turn right to head east back to the trailhead at the parking area at the Scenic Highway.
If you're backpacking, there are tons of camping spots along the way!
