Description

This trail begins at Spruce Knob and goes through dense forest. It is rocky most of the way, and you can expect muddy/marshy areas after heavy rains. There are several campsites along the way.

The return trip through the Judy Springs area can be a bit challenging if you take this trail as an out-and-back, but it is a rewarding hike that is well worth the effort.

Just a dusting of early November snow makes the spruce forest even more magical!
