Description

This trail is a nice easy hike. It is useful to link the trailhead to a larger loop that includes the Powerline Trail and Ginny Trail.

The trail is quite easy and would be good for families. There area couple climbs, but nothing to steep or rugged; and there are some nice views to enjoy along the way.
