Description

This trail starts from the parking area off Unquomonk Road and runs southward. Follow the Williamsburg Woodland Trail markers to stay on the trail. This area has a multitude of other trails; please stick to the markers to avoid getting lost.

It comes up to a fork with a bear crossing sign. Taking the left part of the fork will take you past Whale's Tail Pool, named after the large stone that bears the appearance. It climbs up to a view, lined with small cairn spires and continues on to Big View.

There are plenty of benches at Big View, if you need to take a break from the climb. The trail takes a sharp right turn through the stone assembly area and loops back down to the fork.
