Description

This trail starts at the O' Fallon Park picnic area. This is a great way to access trails in the area if you are entering from up the canyon, or if you want to avoid the busy Lair O' the Bear Trailhead.

As with many of the local trails, this one is relatively smooth, though rocks and roots do occasionally present themselves. If you're heading towards the Lair O' the Bear trails, you'll get to enjoy winding descents to start.

This trail is accessed by parking near the picnic area and crossing the bridge.
