Description

Splitting off of the Festivus trail, this path cuts along the ridgeline of the Pickall Area above the Pickall Trail. While the trail does not have a significant climb overall, it is constantly rising and falling as it passes several stream beds that have eroded their way toward the Patapsco.

Some of these stream beds have low water levels, while others run dry outside of rainy conditions, but all present some level of obstacle in crossing. The trail also includes various obstacles in its terrain such as rocks and root outcroppings, all while following a rather steep edge towards the Patapsco.
