Description

This trail leads out to a fire tower at the midpoint. During the winter, when the leaves are off, you can see for many miles with an unobstructed view. The trail is a dirt path with a steady increase in elevation, which flattens out toward the halfway point.

Flora & Fauna

Ticks, snakes, poison ivy.
