Description

This rails to trails conversion meanders through woods and along rivers. It includes 19 bridges (some of which are historical railroad bridges). The hike includes gentle sustained climbs for an easy going hike with no technical challenges. One can keep a good pace, and the distance provides a good workout in the outdoors.

About half-way through the trail, it passes by Wilson's Grocery (street address: 5941 US-176) - providing an option for snacks and also an alternate starting location. The trail ends where you hit the old and unused rail tracks. There are two campgrounds, show on this map.
