Description

The Kettle Bottom Trail is an intermediate-rated loop trail in Cloudland Canyon State Park's Five Points Trail System. It begins and ends at the "hub" which serves at the central point in the trail system.

This trail is not technical in nature, although there are a few descents and "intersections" of old closed trails that can certainly cause confusion among the less experienced. A shortcut provides an alternate bypass of a large chunk of the trail before you get very far down it. There is a bridge on this trail at the bottom of a somewhat steep descent. Most of the trail is fairly wide, although there are a few narrow spots on it. At about the half-way mark, the trail goes along the edge of a power line easement and re-enters the woods. It then continues rolling along the hillside on its way back to the hub.

Keep in mind that this trail intersects other paths that appear to be trails, but are not. Closed intersecting paths (most of these were used as access routes for machinery during trail construction) will typically have brush or logs blocking passage.
