Family Friendly Young kids can do everything up to the steep climb up Morrow Mountain. If yours are still young, you may want to turn around at this point.

Description

This trail traverses fairly easy rolling hills for most of its length, with almost all of the elevation gain occurring in one straight ascent up the mountain.

Along the way, this trail links up with multiple other park trails including the Sugarloaf Mountain Trail, Laurel Trail, and Mountain Loop Trail. If you have the time, these trails add a great extension to your hike in Morrow Mountain State Park.
