Very Rocky connector from Rock City Road to both the Tornado Bypass and South Pale Ale Trails.

Description

Billygoat Trail is one of the trails truncated by the tornado of 2010. It used to go from Rock City Road all the way to the valley bottom.

Now, the initial part of this descent remains and is as rocky as ever, but soon after it curves around its first house-size boulder, you'll see the tornado bypass trail coming in from the right. This bypass hijacks the rest of the remaining Billygoat as it drops between two more huge boulders and then skirts the very top of the tornado devastation. Climb a boulder to get a better look down the valley, as the pricker bushes are starting to reclaim the barren land (the downed wood has been salvaged).

Where Billygoat used to take a sharp right to descend, it now ends, and instead, joins up with an extended South Pale Ale trail.
