Description

Cliff Hanger Trail's south entrance intersects Hunter Mill Bypass slightly before where Hunter Mill Bypass loses tree cover. Starting from its south end, Cliff Hanger Trail climbs 15 feet, making a right turn towards the parking lot. A small rogue trail to the right connects Cliff Hanger Trail to the parking lot. Taking a left at the aforementioned fork allows the runner to continue on Cliff Hanger. The trail continues to traverse the hill with two tight berms followed by grade reversals before finishing with a rock garden and intersecting with Rails to River Trail.
