Need to Know

It's easy to find the beginning but not so easy to follow it to the end. However, the endpoint is the top of the mountain, and the "mountain" is pretty small. You'll get there eventually, even if it takes a bit of bushwhacking at the end.

Runner Notes

Not recommended for running. Stick to the Reservoir Hollow Trail for that.

Description

The turn-off from the Reservoir Hollow Trail is marked with an arrow but no description. This spur begins clearly enough, but ends up being a bit difficult to follow as you go along. There are old yellow diamond trail markers but I do not think they are all in place anymore. However, the trail ends when you are on top of the mountain, so just keep going up if you lose the official path.
