Need to Know

The trailhead is up Poplar Trail. You'll have to drive up a dirt two track a little ways before you reach the trailhead. There will be a sign at a "Y" in the road instructing you which way the trailhead is. There is a small parking area. It is located in the Three Top Mountain Gameland. Certain times of the year there are hunters, so wear bright colors.

Runner Notes

Lots of loose rocks.

Description

The incline can be steep at times with lots of rocks. There are a few level spots to catch your breathe. In the end, the views are worth the difficult terrain.
