This is a true back-country trail with some technical features (a few rock gardens, roots, mud bogs), and ends with a fun descent to the Cranberry River. (I think the map shows this as the start, but you do not want to come from that direction). Deep pine forest with bright green ferns and moss covering the forest floor. It is a slow, energy-sucking ride. It is not heavily traveled and there can be a few downed trees, and overgrown spots are not uncommon, but this adds to the back-country experience. It primarily goes along the Kennison Mountain ridge although there is some climbing, particular near the beginning. It is definitely best to start at the top off of Rt. 39 and head NW towards the Cranberry. For a great loop, start at the Cranberry Nature Center and head west on Pocahontas Trail for a couple of miles, then turn on Blue Knob Trail #255
and cross Rt. 39 to the Kennison Trail Head. At the end, cross the Cranberry River and there is a forest road about a 100 feet ahead (although you may not be able to see it as you cross river). Turn right and head up the gated forest road to the Cranberry glades. Ride the road out of the glades back to Rt. 39, turn left on 39 and go about a mile back to the C-Nature Center.
