Features River/Creek · Views

Family Friendly Beautiful, dramatic views and a not too challenging trail make this a great trail for out and back trips of varied length.

Description

This trail begins with gentle incline but then is easy going through forest with mossy rocks and rhododendron. Farther down the trail you have multiple opportunities for beautiful expansive views right off trail from rock outcroppings. It's good to wear proper shoes with grip as the rocks can be slippery and the trail is occasionally muddy in the first section.

Access this trail from Laneville Rd. to Forest Road 75 (gravel), where there is parking at the trailhead.
