A great trail with some nice, smooth elevation that feeds into other trails.

Features: Birding — Fall Colors — River/Creek — Wildlife
Dogs: Leashed

Description

You can start at the double A (AA) trail marker of the Park Tour Road/Siege Road. The trail is wide enough for two and has some small elevation gains along this mostly wooded route. You can easily get to Taylor's Creek Trail from the T trail marker and loop back using Willcox Trail or Poor Creek Trail for a little extra distance. Approaching from the U trail marker at the other end will require parking past the Park Resources Building Road. The picnic area is a little far and will require you to hike a bit on Park Tour Road/Siege Road to get to the trail on this end.

Flora & Fauna

Oaks, pines, maples, turtles, squirrels, deer, and birds.
