Description

This is a beautiful shaded trail in a forest. It is very easy to follow. There are a few good climbs, and only one or two short, technical sections. Watch the waterfall crossing, it's very slippery!

Flora & Fauna

Occasional snakes in the summer. If you wander off-trail beware of poison ivy and ticks.
