Description

Some sections are paved, but the backside of the trail is singletrack dirt (and rock) like most of Rockwood Reservation. There are some stairs and a bridge. One of the bridges has been removed after a tree destroyed it, so the path currently traverses a normally dry creek.

This trail has one of the only decent views in the park not obscured by trees, on the bathroom side of the trail.

Flora & Fauna

You'll see plenty of deer and occasionally turkey.
