dogs on leash
It needs a few more blazes as we had to stop and scan a few times. But this trail was beautiful and well worth the sweat. We were the only ones on the trail today. The oasis of the train stop was great! If you walk along the tracks, be wary of the train during excursion season- the trail gets pretty close.
Very easy out and back trail in Blackwater Falls State Park. Suitable for dogs (on leash or under owner's control), kids, and my moderately fit 74 year old mother. Relatively flat, with a couple of small hills. There are rocks and tree roots on the path, so it is definitely a hike, versus a walk. Path wanders through the forests of Blackwater Falls and ends at gorgeous views of the gullies. Stacked stones mark the turn off to the views.
