Good hills along this route, but hike with a partner and exercise situational awareness.

Description

This section of this PATH system splits off of the Arabia Mountain Trail and tracks north over creeks, through dense forest, and culminates at MLK Jr. High School parking lot.

Some good hills along this route. Plenty of wildlife to see year round. One note, the South River trail is okay up until it cuts through some nearby residential areas. I observed a lot of graffiti, food wrappers, and even a little blue (possibly drug) baggie. It's a shame because the rest of this trail and the connected PATH system are very nice and not sketchy at all.
