Description

This is without a doubt one of the best single trails in the park. It has a great rolling style, with few rocks and roots. This is a welcome break from what you'll find on most other trails. Even though it's not as difficult as Wilkin's Way, this trail will keep you engaged and smiling with the way it winds though the woods with steep hills and interesting terrain.

If you like speeding your way down the hills, hike it counter-clockwise. Those who enjoy climbing will get the most out of this trail hiking clockwise.
