Overview

Features: Birding — Fall Colors — River/Creek — Waterfall — Wildflowers — Wildlife
Dogs: Leashed

Description

This trail is similar to Billy Goat Trail Section A, but less intense and with fewer stretches of rock scrambling. Consequently, the trail is less used than Section A and provides a quieter exploration of the environments of the lower Mather Gorge.
