The White Trail takes you through the picturesque hollow going north from southern parking lot to the northern picnic area. It crosses the stream twice and passes the distinct rock formation called the Devil's Backbone, before turning south and following the ridge line back to the trail head.

My favorite part of Bell Smith - swim every year at Devil's Backbone, it's gorgeous!

One of three official trails in Bell Smith. This contains the Devil's backbone feature. Shawnee forest is a great area to hike
