Description

This trail splits off of the White Trail and is, as the name suggests, blazed orange.

The trail continues being fairly flat, while the ridge emerges below. It then continues until the trail suddenly drops steeply. In this section, there is a rope tied along the edge to assist hikers on their way up or down. It then switches back across Iron Stream and climbs up the second ridge.

This gives wonderful views of the rock formation that makes up the first section of the trail. It then continues with some slight inclines and views of the surrounding area until its terminus.
