Description

Starting around one mile down Mathews Arm Trail, this trail begins its descent gradually. After about eight-tenths of a mile, the trail begins a more steep dive along Beecher Ridge, some 600' above the East Fork of Dry Run.

At around 2.5 miles, the trail will meet the Overall/Beecher Connector Trail, which leads to the north towards the Tuscarora-Overall Run Trail. Stay on this trail as it turns sharply to the left, with a small climb before crossing the East Fork of Dry Run and Moody Creek, at Keyser Hollow. The trail ends at the Heiskell Hollow Trail.
