Trail Overview

Trail 52 is a more direct route to the Cold Gap Waterfall from easier green trails such as G50 and G53 to G52. This small section still provides some small technical challenges as Windrock Park considers it an easy "blue" trail, but it prevents the longer route through Trail 53. Expect loose rock with one small section that many stock-height vehicles will frame out on. During the Autumn months when the leaves fall, there are sneak peeks to give insight into just how high this trail is.


Most stock 4x4 will be accommodated on this trail, but ground clearance can pose a problem. With increased precipitation, wheel slip could increase on the side of this mountain trail.
