Description

This trail is the longest and most secluded of the Cone Manor Trails after you get past the busy start at the Cone Manor itself. It is great for escaping it all and having a solid hike. You can also use this trail to connect to Deer Park Road or Black Bottom Road for a variety of loops or longer hikes as desired.
