Description

The South Boundary Trail, for much of its length, is generally unmaintained and should not be counted on for easy going from place to place. The short section near Scalplock lookout is well maintained and provides excellent access to the Nyack Creek Trail but the majority of the rest of it will be in an often general state of disuse and is mainly still in place for fire mitigation should the need for this type of access arise.
