Need to Know

The trail is soggy in spring and slightly overgrown, so prepare for floribunda roses to grab at you.

Description

You can reach this trail from multiple points, but regardless of how you find it, look for the signs to Five Points and yellow blazes. The trail is not well marked, but if you get lost you'll be bordered by access roads on all sides.

Along the way, you'll see a valley overlook, pond, open meadow, deep hardwood and pine forest, and a variety of wildlife.

Flora & Fauna

Wild turkey, deer, coyote, woodpeckers, bluebirds and all manner of little critters can be found here!
