“A good wilderness workout in a less than 4-mile run.”— Imre Pattantyus
This trail is an excellent alternative run when the foot bridges on Spring Creek Trail are out of service, which has occurred several times from 2016 through 2019.
The 500-foot elevation change makes this trail a good workout. On the doubletrack, there is not much shade, so this is a good trail for an overcast day or a rainy day. Both trailheads have parking and information boards with maps. The trail next to Spring Creek has a lot of poison ivy and rocks that are slippery in wet weather. Hiking poles are recommended.
