Description

This is a great woodland trail around Battleship Rock. You can make this a nice out and back or a neat short loop by combining it with the Original Trail, or make it into a super trail by coming up the Original Trail and then continuing along the Rock Garden Loop.

Flora & Fauna

Trees galore, normal small woodland creatures, ferns aplenty, and stunning hemlocks adorn this area.

Serene in the morning hours with some beautiful sunlight peaking through the trees on the ascent. The view from the top is gorgeous. 0.8mi

Watch your step with the poison ivy. A section of the walkway was ruined by a falling tree, so watch your step. Nice little walk down from the bridge. 0.6mi — 0h 30m
