“A very difficult trail featuring fantastic stone cuts.”— Luke Brisk
The best route is starting from off the Sinks Trail near the Three Benches. This intersection is where both the Keith Trail and Stone Cuts Trail start. From here the trail inclines to the Stone Cuts. Just before reaching the formations the Stone Cuts bypass branches off to your left. A little bit further up the trail is where the Stone Cuts start.
The limestone has formed a cool tunnel you go through then under a tree that is leaning between two walls before spitting you out the other end.
After the "Cuts" the trail declines and is very rocky require some technical hiking skills for the rest of the trail. Near the 1/2 mile point, the Logan Point Trail branches off to the north and at 0.65 miles Panther Knob Trail does as well before ending at the Logan Point Trail.
