Trail shared by Rich Greeley

A washed-out gravel work road up the front of Walnut Mountain.

Description

This "road" was used to access a fire tower at the top of Walnut Mountain built by the Civilian Conservation Corps back in the 1930's. This is just one way up to the nicer singletrack on both sides of Walnut. While short, the road offers a decent pitch and plenty of loose rocks and gravel.
