Miles: 1.1

Blaze Color: Yellow-Red

Difficulty Level: MODERATE

The north end of the trail leaves the stream and yellow birches and rhododendron of the Shamokin Gorge and enters oak-hickory forest type. As the trail enters south facing territory, several small streams cross the trail. This southern end is ideal for spring wildflowers like bloodroot, wild ginger, and violets; all of which bloom in April. Watch for stinging nettle (long pants recommended). Use caution in winter.
