Description

This trail is bi-directional and has great flow. The difficulty rating is due to a technical section that is on one end of the trail. One end of this trail is located at the Contact Station, which is the old entrance to DeSoto State Park while the other end of the trail is located on a chert road in the primitive camping area.

Making the turn to head down a rocky section.  Even more challenging climbing out.
