Features River/Creek · Wildlife

The bridge is out on South Street so accessing the trail from the northwest end is difficult.

Description

This trail starts off the west side of River Road. Follow the trail that heads up towards the powerlines, not the one that descends to the reservoir. The trail enters the woods and follows along a singletrack. The trail turns right at the "Tent Rock" and descends towards the stream. It follows along the stream to where the Smith Hollow Trail turns uphill. Here, the trail descends stone stairs and fords the stream.

The trail turns left onto a doubletrack and follows it uphill then turns left towards the shelter and crosses a dilapidated bridge. It heads up towards the powerlines and passes beneath them and passes by a jumbled mass of large boulders. As the trail approaches Main Road, it turns left towards the Old Waterwheel site. The trail ends on South Street near the bridge.

*The bridge is out, so if you plan on running the Monroe Forest Loop, you'll have to ford the stream. Please use caution, the water is difficult to cross here.
