Trail shared by Brandon Thrower

The newest and most manageable trail in the entire park. The Hidden Cove Trail was made for hikers!

Description

This trail is the newest addition to South Mountains State Park and is a joy to hike. The trail was recently built to provide an easier trail for guests starting at the visitor center. However, they built one of the nicest singletrack trails around, and it is phenomenal for hiking. The views in the winter are great as well. The trail weaves in and out of coves on its journey to join up with the Turkey Ridge Trail. The blaze color is orange diamonds.
