Description

The Kaymoor Trail connects Cunard and Fayetteville. It's mostly a flat old road in generally reasonable condition, which connects to a host of other trails in the area, as well as bypasses the historic mine site at Kaymoor. It can be accessed from the Arrowhead Trails via Craig Branch Trail to make a good loop from Arrowhead to Fayetteville coming back on singletrack. This trail presents stunning views of the gorge and the bridge especially after the leaves have fallen.
