This trail starts at the picnic area and crosses the highway and the head waters to Shoal Creek. It meets the the Mossback Ridge Trail to make a loop with the North Rim Trail. The area now occupied by the Greenfield Picnic Area and the visitor center was a family farm before the Great Depression. The Greenfield Trail starts in the picnic area, crosses the highway and the headwaters of Big Shoal Creek, and meets the Mossback Ridge Trail. It climbs 210 feet in elevation. This is a good place to start a 14-mile hike to Cove Lake. (Green Blazes) A .3-mile spur leads down an old wagon road to Turkey Springs.

Pretty overgrown in spots, but a very green, forest trail. Lots of loose rock underfoot when walking up and down the hill.

This trail is .9 miles, and there is a spur that you can take at the beginning to Turkey Springs that is .3 miles. We did both one foggy morning this spring. Doing it in the fog was a unique and neat experience that I recommend. The forest is pretty this time of year as everything is lush and newly green with lots of wildflowers on the Greenfield Trail. Turkey Springs spur was pretty wet/muddy from recent rain. Greenfield has a fair amount of uphill hiking to where it meets the Mossback Ridge Trail, but it's all downhill on the way back. It starts in the Greenfield picnic area.
