Description

Starting at the intersection of Telegraph Trail, take the yellow blazes (I did not see them last time I was on this, and the trail was kind of a mess, so look hard) and begin a gradual ascent into the dense shortleaf pine stand. At about 0.75 miles in, you'll begin to enter the densest portion of this beautiful stand of trees. Climb a bit further and you level out on the ridge where the pines give way to a mixed species forest. Descend till you connect with Devil's Backbone Trail. Either turn right onto the blue-blazed trail to make a nice loop back to the Telegraph Trail, or continue on until you connect with Artillery Trail.
