Need to Know

Pants are a good idea as the old logging roads are full of stinging nettle

Description

From the far end of the Red Trail, this trail starts by winding it way down through various boulders.

The trail eventually turns south and cuts across some cobbles until it meets with an old logging road. From here you cruise along until you pass the massive Moher Boulder on your left. Not long after that look for a steep logging road that makes a hard left and reconnects you with the Red Trail.
