Description

Thrift Cove is the best way to get to the lower section of Black Mountain Trail (#127). The first section of the trail is wide and steep, with few roots or large obstacles. After a steady climb, the trail levels out and becomes more sandy before meeting up with the Black Mountain Trail (#127).
