Trail shared by Lou Poulas

A picturesque woods trail along a river and overlooking Weldon Road.

Features River/Creek · Wildlife

Family Friendly Children will enjoy climbing down the stream bank and crossing it via fallen trees.

Description

There are many trails in Mahlon Dickerson and the best use of your trail time is to piece together sections of different trails. This is a beautiful but short side trail that has its share of ups and downs considering its length. You'll start along a small stream before approaching Weldon Road and a nice view of the Jefferson High School and Middle School from atop a small cliff. Both the start and finish of this trail is off of White/Teal (Highlands Trail) making it easy to incorporate into a longer overall hike. This trail is also good for winter hiking.

Flora & Fauna

Deer and an occasional bear.
