A short loop trail near the campground and Turkey Run Hollow. Fun and scenic trail, and fantastic evening hike.

Family Friendly Short, scenic trail with lots of rocks for kids to play on. Beware that the north side of this trail is along a small cliff.

Description

This trail can start at either the campground or Trail #6. If starting at the campground, take a right at the Y. The trail goes down a steep valley and meets a small creek. Turn left and follow the creek until intersecting Trail #6. Along this stretch there are a lot of boulders and unique picture opportunities due to the rocky landscape.

Take a left after meeting Trail #6. The trail then climbs a bluff and enters a pine forest. To the right of the trail are nice views of Sugar Creek from the top of the cliff. Eventually you'll come across a valley on the right which will seasonally feature a waterfall. Passing the waterfall and a sitting area, the trail rejoins the connector to the campground.

Flora & Fauna

Owls, raccoons, and skunks common at night.
