“A nice creekside trail that climbs into rich forestland. Can easily be used as a loop with Caney Bottom Trail #361.”— Matthew Fedel
The trail will climb past Cove Creek Falls and into rich hardwood forest above the streams. You'll wind around ridge lines and cross over streams with several log footbridges. Along the way, you'll encounter nice, natural open areas, which are great for spotting wildlife. The trail will also give you a view of Looking Glass Rock to the east. The trail will end at the Caney Bottom Trail #361.
This trail makes an excellent loop when combined with Caney Bottom Trail #361 and/or with the short Cove Creek Falls Connector.
