“A generally level connector trail parallel to Poverty Creek.”

The blue-blazed May Apple Trail can be accessed from the Pandapas Pond Day Use Area. It connects from the white-blazed Snakeroot Trail at its northern end and the orange-blazed Poverty Creek Trail
on its southern end. The May Apple Trail parallels the Poverty Creek Trail
with a little less traffic and a slightly narrower trail. If hiking from north to south, the trail is generally level with a slight downhill and two creek crossings just before the southern end of the trail.
This is a shared trail with mountain bikers and horses. Heads up for mountain bikers speeding downhill from north to south. When encountering a horse, it is proper etiquette to step off the trail to the downhill side and stop until the horse has passed. Also, be sure to wear bright colors during hunting season (October 1st through the first week of January). And be friendly; say "hi" to other folks out enjoying the forest!
