Need to Know

Judging from all the flagging, it appears that this trail is still being developed.

Description

This trail starts from the summit of Osceda Mountain, at the top of the chair lift. It passes by a radio tower, then pass Secret Trail (on the left). When the main trail comes to a turn, Yokun Ridge Trail stays forward right. It passes through an open area filled with Blueberry bushes and Hay-Scented Ferns. It runs through the woods, then climbs a washed-out stretch up to Yokun Seat (2, 116 feet). Here, just below a radio tower, there's excellent views to the north. It skirts around the base of the tower, then back into the woods. It pushes through a "carwash" of Beech trees as it makes its way to the Richmond Fire Tower.

Flora & Fauna

Flora: Hay-Scented Fern, Blueberry bushes, Hop Hornbeam.
Fauna: Turkey, Tiger Beetles.
