Description

The Lelia June Trail connects the Rufus Creek Trail to the Baneberry Trail. Shortly after splitting off from the Rufus Creek Trail, hikers will encounter a towering moss-covered tree on the left before beginning a gradual descent. This tranquil setting is followed by a tree-lined corridor that works down to a fern-covered slope. Here the trail juts upwards for a punchy climb that will require careful footwork if the ground is covered in wet leaves. The climbing continues with short sections of level ground interspersed. The trees on this shaded slope are more sparsely spaced as hikers work through the switchbacks. The cadence of switchback and climb, switchback and climb continues for sometime. It's not over-taxing, but it will get your heart rate up.

Eventually, the trail levels off at a small clearing where it intersects with the Baneberry Trail. The left option will soon widen into a steady doubletrack descent while the singletrack portion of the Baneberry Trail continues to the right for more switchbacks that connect to the Rufus Creek Trail.
