Need to Know

There is a downed birch tree towards the north end of the trail.

Description

This trail starts off Sunset Beach Trail and is difficult to find. The trail heads northeast, just south of Rocky Point Trail. There's a sign with a picture of a buffalo and a nickel; from here, follow the white-and-blue striped tape. This trail stays up on the ridge through a birch glade, then descends moderately down to Spruce Point Trail. The trail is very narrow, as it pushes through some Hemlock trees out to the field.

You may be able to find a bike trail map at the Mill Resort desk. This, along with the other portions of the bike paths, have been neglected in their maintenance.

Flora & Fauna

White birch, eastern hemlock, birch polypore, and chickadee can all be found here.
