A scenic trail with a few technical features and challenges.

Philip Darden

Overview

Description

The action starts at the entrance of this trail if you choose the short ADV (advanced) option to the right just after crossing the bridge and leaving the Creek View Trail, with quick turns, short-steep dips, and climbs. Or, you can choose the shortcut CCC connector to the left to bypass the short, advanced option and get right on the CCC trail.

After a rippling downhill, the trail turns up and twists through the woods west and north of the old CCC camp, now used as the group campground. Glimpse the open expanses of the group campground while passing foundations, chimneys, and refuse deposits left over from previous use by Civilian Conservation Corps. The trail drops to another old CCC trail bordering Town Creek. Listen for the water splashing granite shelves and see tumbled boulders and fallen trees in the creek.

At the Hank-Graham Bridge, decide if time is available to explore the more flowing and rustic For Petes Sake Trail on the other side of the Town Creek. On the CCC Trail, riders will need to overcome a schizophrenic, winding climb and go past the old water tower and group campground shelters. After passing the residential properties along the parks north border, finish with quick turns, short, steep dips, and short climbs that lead you back to the Lakeside Connector Trail.
