“This lush and wooded trail ascends part-way up Mount Misery.”— Megan W
Continue uphill, sometimes steeply before reaching an intersection with the Mount Misery Trail. To stay on the Horse-Shoe Trail, continue right (westwards) over easier ground along a ridge. About 0.2 miles after the junction, the trail crosses into private land, finally ending at East Forge Mountain Road atop Mount Misery.
Note: Horses are also allowed on this trail, so please be courteous to your fellow trail users.
