“A short, scenic loop through the forest, leading to a historic log cabin.”— Ken Wise
Family Friendly This trail's short length, manageable grades, and historic cabin make it a wonderful option for families with children.
Eventually, the trail leads visitors to a small log cabin built by John Ownby and the remains of another cabin once owned by Noah McCarter.
