Description

This well-worn singletrack trail has some steep grades that get slippery with a little moisture, but there are many unique trees and an abundance of wildlife that keeps the trail interesting. The are several bridges over water crossings. Note that the trail start and end are not at the same point. If wanting to hike the loop counter-clockwise, and you're not paying attention while hiking the Warbler Road Trail, you might miss the split.
