An improved gravel fire road that meanders across the ridge line before plunging toward the Shavers Fork
River. This trail accesses McDonald Way
and Lower Spruce Road
. If you would like to elevate yourself to new heights, climb the 80 steps to the peak of the fire tower for a spectacular 360-degree view. For a less strenuous trek out, double back from the fire tower to 6000 Steps
to Shavers Lake Road
to Ballhooter Lift.
