Description

Beginning from Bathhouse Row, this trail is a great way to get back to the Gulpha Gorge Campground without having to move your vehicle. This route starts out steeply but quickly levels out for a pleasant journey.

Along the way, visitors can enjoy meandering through the pine and hardwood forest while listening to warblers in the trees. The trail skirts the main ridge of Hot Springs Mountain, and the route is non-technical.

Flora & Fauna

Local birds like warblers can be heard in the mixed forest.
