True to its name, Root Hill is one of the biggest climbs in the park and is quite rooty.

Description

This short trail is a good climb when taken from south to north and fast descent when taken in the other direction. Use caution when hiking down the hill, as the trail lives up to its name. This trail truly is full of roots.
