“A good traversing trail which allows a switch from one side of the mountain to the other.”
— Eric Ashley
Galbraith Mountain is privately owned but trails are created and maintained by WMBC. Galbraith is open to non-motorized users except for hunting and fishing. The area is an ongoing site for logging operations so visitors should be on the lookout for temporary trail closures. Trails are multi-use; expect traffic in both directions and yield to hikers and equestrian users.
An agreeable trail in its own right, Kaiser is a good connector linking trails from either side of the summit allowing for an easy "switch." Specifically, it connects the Tower Road
(RD 3000) and the 3 Pigs to RD 2722 allowing access to trails like Oly
, Bottle Opener
Kaiser is a pleasant saunter through a harvested stretch of trees serving up moderate obstacles along the way. There are a few low bridges and planks to help avoid wet spots. There is also a trail crossing with Mullet
(a one-way trail with some speed), so cross carefully.
The upper section of Kaiser was rerouted in 2015 and now joins higher up on RD 2722. This newest section is casually flowy with a broader corridor than the rest of the trail.
