Description

From the entrance, the trail ascends gradually through second-growth hardwoods to a high, rocky point (via a short side trail) overlooking a fine expanse of laurel and, in winter, a distant view. The main loop passes through two handsome groves of beech trees before descending over rocks to rejoin the entrance trail.

Flora & Fauna

Delicate flowers can be seen in early spring along the path. In season, flowering dogwood, witch hazel, mountain laurel and Christmas ferns make the trail especially attractive.
