Description

From Black Rock Road in the east, the Seneca Ridge Trail follows the contours of the heights above the southeastern bank of Seneca Creek, parallel to the Seneca Creek Greenway Trail on the opposite bank, crossing Germantown Road after two miles. For the next 4 miles the trail follows an increasingly circuitous route in and out of a number of feeder stream valleys before ending at Riffle Ford Road.
