Family Friendly God information and visual about logging history of the mountain region.

Description

The trail starts out at the McGee Forestry Center. It continues down to an example logger shack that shows what life was like in a logging camp. The trail continues past exhibits that detail logging knowledge.

Arriving at another exhibit, hikers meet Algebra and Gibraltar, two horses used to pull timber out of the forest. The trail meanders its way around to a sawmill that was actually used to create lumber in days gone by. The parking area where the trail started is just back down the hill from the sawmill exhibit.
