“This strenuous trail provides visitors with a steeper climb through shady forests and great views.”— Mikhaila Redovian
Family Friendly Though steep, this scenic trail might be perfect for older kids, and is a great place to explore mixed assemblage forests.
While you're taking your time climbing this trail, note the changing forest that surrounds the trail. The route begins in a predominantly pine forest before moving higher in elevation to a more mixed assemblage forest, and finally coming to an end in an area dominated by mature hardwoods. Especially in the fall, the colors of the leaves changing contrasts nicely with the dark greens of the pine forests.
Once you've taken your time to enjoy the views from the top of Wolf Rock, you can continue on the Blackjack Ridge Trail, or return the way that you came.
