“The best of both worlds for hiking in the deep woods close to town.”— Jeff Gandee
Family Friendly Easy terrain on some trails and accessibility to town makes this a great starter area for kids.
Take a right turn onto the Athens Trail; here the terrain eases as you are now hiking along a ridgetop. After about a mile, the White Oak Connector Trail will turn to the right. This one will switchback down in to a large hollow.
At the end of 0.2 miles, the White Oak Connector Trail deadends at the Rockhouse Trail. Turn right on the Rockhouse Trail and begin to wind your way along the base of several large rock formations. There is a bit of a climb out as you regain the elevation lost on the way down to the rock formations, and eventually you regain the ridge and pretty much follow it's winding path back to the parking lot.
