Contrary to popular belief, this trail is not named after a character from Thomas and Friends.

Description

Shovelton is a short trail that starts off the Devils Racetrack Trail and runs to a three-way intersection with Haris Trail and Rock Wall Trail. It is an easy singletrack trail that gets rockier as it gets closer to the Haris Trail/ Rock Wall Trail intersection with a short 35-foot descent.

I have written an article about this and the other trails in this area on Huntsville Outdoors.com
