Features -none-

As of June 2016, the lower section of Trail 2 does experience flooding from time to time. When the lower section of Trail 2 is closed, please use Mud Connector to continue on to Trail 3 and return back to the kiosk. From there use Trail 1 or Trail 4 to Trail B or Trail C to get you down the hill.

Description

Quick and flowing in either direction, Trail 2 offers some of our park's best scenery! A few tight corners, a couple low hanging limbs, and a simple log over make Trail 2 great for all ages and skill levels. Drop down to Trail C or use the Mud Connector to continue on to Trail 3 and fly back up the hill to the kiosk.

With great canopy filtered natural light, Trail 2 is great place to snap a picture almost anytime of the day!
