Trail shared by Kevin Ketchman

The steepest of the four major hills in the area with significant roots.

Features Fall Colors

Description

Starting from Spruce Run and heading downhill, the trail immediately begins to drop off from the hilltop. The trail has plenty of exposed roots and fallen trees across the trail. The last very little bit of trail becomes extremely steep, and at the crest of this drop off there is an opportunity to look out across Trout Run, especially in fall.
