Description

This trail connects Trail #481 and Trail #457. This is generally used as a connector trail to make hiking loops so you dont have to backtrack a trail you've already been on. It can also be used as a quicker way to get back to the parking area. There is not a lot to see on this trail, but it's an easy singletrack through the woods.
