Lots of roots and rocks in the trail.

Description

The parking for this trail is located on the west side of Hwy-19. The trail starts in the northwest corner of the parking area. Though the trail is usually maintained, fallen trees may cross the path in places. The trail heads through the woods, then descends a series of switchbacks to a spring that feeds the Eleven Point River. Large trees line the path and interesting rock features increase near the end of the trail.

Flora & Fauna

Lush forest growth such as ferns and moss down by the spring.
