Trail shared by Gene Williams

A creekside trail that passes an old ruined mill and ends with light scrambling and a little ascent.

Gene Williams

Features River/Creek · Views

Family Friendly The beginning half of the trail is very flat, and easy to navigate. The creek makes a fun place for kids and adults alike to cool off during hot summer days.

Description

From the trailhead, follow the easy to find red blazes along the creek. Enjoy a nice photo opportunity as you pass the old ruined mill. After you pass the mill, the trail becomes a little more difficult with light scrambling over small to medium sized rocks, and a couple stair assisted ascents. The trail is 2.4 miles in total. Once you reach an intersection with the White Trail, return the way you came, or extend your journey by finishing a loop on that trail.
