Family Friendly Kids will enjoy this trail's forested nature and the ever-exciting Tippin Rock.

The parking lot is small and has a gate that is used for access to the field. DO NOT PARK IN FRONT OF THE GATE. If the parking lot is full you should think about going somewhere else as parking on the road may be risky. If you can find a spot, walk across the field to the back right (southwest) corner to reach the beginning of the trail.

Description

This is a smooth-treaded trail through dense hardwood forest to a decent viewpoint on the edge of a tall cliff. Be careful with kids as it is a shear 50+ foot drop over the edge. There is also Tippin Rock, which is a 40-ton boulder sitting on a slab of granite that you can push to get rocking back and forth. The trail is well worn and well marked with blue blazes.
