Description

From the Pumphouse Trail parking lot, you hike on a wide trail with an easy gradual incline. A small well marked diversion (shown on my track) leads to the Jones Mill Run Dam which was built by the CCC. The dam is built so water cascades down rock "steps." There are benches where you can enjoy the views. You can return to the parking area or continue up the trail, which eventually connects with the Martz Trail.

Flora & Fauna

Tall hardwoods.
