Description

Starting at the Hamilton Ridge Trail Parking Area off Old Mine Rd., travel west along the trail. Climb the ridgeline through dense hardwood forests, passing a junction with the Orchard Trail about 0.5 miles from the trailhead. Continue on the dirt-treaded trail, slowly descending along the nose of the ridge. Pass two trail junctions on the right (both leading to the Pioneer Trail) before the trail ends at an intersection with Old Mine Rd.

Flora & Fauna

Eastern hardwoods abound on this ridge-top trail.
