This trail is primarily used to connect the Honeysuckle Trail
with the Lower Dogwood Trail
. This trail makes a "U" shape, ascending to Hot Springs Mountain and North Mountain on both sides of Hot Springs Mountain Drive.
From the road, heading east to Hot Springs Mountain will take visitors up a series to switchbacks to the Honeysuckle Trail
and the picnic shelter located near the trail Junction. If instead you're headed west, you'll be treated to a stone staircase on your way to the Lower Dogwood Trail
Climbing quickly in either direction, this trail provides a new perspective on the valley, and scenic views of the surrounding forest.
Flora & Fauna
Chipmunks and squirrels can be found in this mixed forest.
