Trail Overview

Dead end route to a mountain pond. This route gradually climbs the mountain and ends at multiple locked gates. The route has some exposed base stone and muddy sections but generally maintained gravel forest service route. The route follows a creek with several dispersed camping areas along the creek. The end has a parking area and then a short .25 mile hike to a mountain pond. Cell service is spotty in the area. Near the exit of the national forest you'll find a historic rock iron ore furnace.
