Trail Overview

This is a dead-end Forest Service road. It likely has spectacular fall foliage, and there is a small cave entrance labeled on the Forest Service map. The "cave entrance" is less than expected, with litter and beer bottles spread around the area. Otherwise, this is a simple out-and-back trail with a graded turnaround at the end of the trail. There are several downed trees, with very little room on either side of the path to cut through. There are some mud puddles, but they have a stable bottom for the most part.

Difficulty

This trail starts out as gravel, but turns into a muddy road just a little ways in. Obstacles are smaller than 1 foot and mud puddles are not super deep. The trail is tight, so wider vehicles will find it difficult to navigate unless someone brings a chainsaw and widens the area with the downed limb.
