The trailhead can be tricky to find as there is no sign for the access from the forestry road you take to get there. Just look for a road dirt road to the left about a third of a mile up the forestry road and the trailhead will become almost immediately apparent.

Use the Trail Run Project mobile app and/or Google and it should get you to the right spot. Just keep an eye out for that side access.

Description

The Jerry Miller is a consistent, mellow grade, climbing up to the AT. It is not heavily used (we were there on a weekend in early Oct and saw no one). There is nothing spectacular about the trail. What makes it such a great trail is that you'll have it all to yourself, that it can be used with the AT and the Green Ridge trail to form an amazing loop, and that at the top of this trail there is a spur trail leading to some amazing cliff views.

This trail, the Baxter Cliff spur trail, is marked by a half broken sign. It is well worth the extra work to get to that view.
