“This easy and pleasant trail follows along Valley Creek.”— Megan W
Family Friendly Though the trail might not have many educational stops, the opportunity to see the derelict bottling plant is exciting, and youngsters will likely enjoy the first portion of the trail.
After passing the intersection with the Horse-Shoe Trail, continue back eastwards until reaching the creek again. Follow the creek on this essentially flat trail as in hugs the eastern flank of Mount Misery. The short and relatively steep Wolfinger Trail heads west uphill. Soon the Valley Creek Trail ends at the Knox Covered Bridge.
Note: bikes and horses are also allowed on this trail, so a little extra caution is advised.
