Description

The first leg of the trail is 2.2 miles, connecting the black mountain overlook with the Williams River Valley overlook. From narrow paths, to hard, upward walks, this path has it all. Be sure to pack water, because you’ll definitely need it. Fungus of all colors litter the grounds around the paths, as well as game like squirrels and deer.
