This trail goes from Pandapas Pond to a service road near Long Shop and is part of the Jefferson National Forest. In total, round trip it's 14.2 miles. It is used for hiking and mt. biking. It is a pretty easy hike with some slow inclines. If you are starting from the service road there is rarely anyone on this trail. There are places to park along the road. The trail can get overgrown in the raining summer months. Overall, I enjoy taking my dogs and hiking this trail.
