Description

This segment starts at the parking lot and then works its way up the hillside with rock steps and then makes its way into the trees. The trail is mostly dirt with flat rocks that assist with ascents and descents. It ends at the parking lot on the other side of the creek. A highly recommended route to do in the fall as the colors of the trees is spectacular.
