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.
