Watch for prescribed burn notices and bears. Runs on Nature Conservation and National Forest land.

Description

This is a fun trail with some challenging rock sections. Depending on how recent it's received trail work, hikers can expect some section of overgrown brush and should be on the lookout for fallen trees. This still makes for a fun descent or climb. The trail can be used as a backdoor into Douthat State Park as it connects to Middle Mountain in the east.
