A small uphill to the top of a craggy hill in Arcadia management area. Be aware of hunting season and wear orange.
Great trail with varying degrees of difficulty. Very easy in the beginning with some rocky climbs beginning half way through(although short compared to our neighbors to the north). You can park at varying points along the trail to make it the proper length for your ability. I tend to hike from the head of the trail off 165 on the left near the JB Hudson trail (which would be on the right). We hike through the Wood River Junction and across Mt Tom Road until the trail crosses 165. Looking to complete the last stretch on our next run in this area and I'll update this with the landscape.
