Description

From it's start at a junction with the Valley Creek Trail, the Horse-Shoe Trail climbs steadily, paralleling the braided Colonial Springs. The wooded landscape may offer a few glimpsed views. Also hidden in the trees, are the ruins of an old bottling plant, and sharp eyes can still spot the stone walls.

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.

Horseshoe Trail continues on for about 140 Miles until it hits the AT near Harrisburg, but it really starts getting good at Mile 19 or so. Definately more that 2 stars when taken in its entirety. Oct 23, 2017
