Description

This trail heads through the heart of the Montour Woods Conservation Area. It goes from the end of the Cave Trail and travels up the hillside via multiple switchbacks. Given the elevation change, it's an easy ascent. Once at the top of the hill, the trail follows the ridge line.

Make sure to check out the Nike Missile Site at the top of the trail. At the trail terminus, go straight up the hill, past the rusty fence to the clearing.
