Description

Access this trail from either the the western most portion of the Shenipsit/Gay City Connector or from the parking on Birch Mountain Road. The trail will turn into the woods just before a private residency and work its way steadily downhill. The paths will merge with other Gay City State Park trails, most notably the Red Trail, until turning uphill and emerging near parking in the park.
