Description

Megawatt is one of the rougher trail in the Racoon Mountain trail system and has several short, challenging, climbs, but the reward is worth the effort as the trail covers a beautiful, and typically quieter, section of the trail system.

Watch out for giant thorns in the clearings of Megawatt. The views are awesome!
