Description

This trail is heavily wooded with lots of roots and rocks. The trail begins at the Trail 1 Parking Lot and follows an existing gravel road before turning to the left and gradually descending into the Fourteenmile Creek valley. It then meanders through dense floodplain forest before climbing up the valley wall to wind along rock outcrops. A lower portion of the trail offers scenic views of Fourteenmile Creek before climbing again as it returns to the parking lot. Spring wildflowers along portions of this trail will treat hikers to stunning displays. Wildlife, songbirds, and birds of prey may be seen along this trail.

Ended at 1038. Pretty easy trail but does have some large rocks and roots that can make it interesting when wet. 2.4mi
