Description

A multi-use trail from the Upper Ted Lake parking area, this one mostly descends heading east and north with two distinct climbs. The first is near a clear-cut area where the trail turns left (northeast) back into the woods toward Wildcat Hollow and the second is a steep section up and over toward Kettle Run around mile 1.4 where the trail ducks through the top of the drainage. This is followed by a steep descent as the trail bends to the north in its final brief climb to the Trillium Trail and the G. R. Thompson WMA Loop.
