Moderate hike, connecting to Canfield Mtn. trail system This is a nice climb, with views through the trees. This trail connects with the Canfield Mtn trail system. Presently there is only one blowdown, it appears the local horse clubs maintain the trail well. This is also accessed by horseback from Dalton Gardens area.

We hiked to the top for the great view, which brought our total mileage to just over 7 miles. Great trail!
