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.
