Need to Know

This trails does not seem to get much traffic - so a good hike to get away from it all

Description

Trail is a right branch off the blue trail at a clearing. Blue trail is a wide access road at this location, with white horseshoe blazer marking the start of the loop. There are not a lot of blazer markings but the trail was obvious and clear of leaves in March when mapped.

Trail starts through open pine woodlands and meanders down to the water. Close to the water you pass some stones arranged as seats around a fire ring.

The section along next to the water has some steep sections as it winds up and down - the black ranking for this section is probably warranted!

There is a white blazed junction heading away from the water that is not currently marked on this app (I may go back and map it later). Current loop ends where it re-connects with the "blue trail", but the trail remains blazed with black squares with a white horse shoe for a bit longer next to the water.

Flora & Fauna

Open woods - mix of pine and then transitions into other woods
