Description

Greatness. This trail rides great in either direction, and is a gentle ascent/decent between Slack's Trail and the upper lake. Generally smooth, but the sections of steeper grade are marked by water bars (both wood and rock) that can be a bit challenging to climb. Watch out for hikers/fishermen! Probably the most used trail at Sherando. Can be used as a short loop with Lower Slack's Trail, Parkway, Torry Ridge Trail, Blue Loop Connector.
