Family Friendly Short fairly easy trail.

Description

Easy to moderate trail.

Parking at the cemetary adds a nearly mile long moderate to hard steep climb to the actual trailhead. 2wd high clearance vehicle can make it up, but not much room to park.

Some nice views of Lake City on the trail, but most is in woods.
