A rough trail with some steeper sections.

Features -none-

Family Friendly Many carriage road trails that are easy to hike with lots of fun stuff to look at and climb on.

Open sunrise to sunset. Stay off the trails if they are muddy and keep the singletrack single.

Description

This is the red-blazed Crossover Trail that links the green and yellow River Road Trail to the yellow Swamp Trail. It's the most direct way to cross between the west and east sides of the Yellow Loop. While it is the most direct, it is definitely not the easiest. This may be the most challenging trail at the park. It's steep and rough singletrack with tight switchbacks. There are also rocks and roots scattered about, so watch your foot work.
