This is a natural surface trail that connects the Magruder Branch Trail to the Upper Seneca Creek Trail. There is no parking area at Log House Road. This trail is best used as a connecter. You'll walk through second-growth forest and may see deer and squirrels.

I prefer walking on natural surface trails. I often hike this trail when I'm on the Magruder Branch Trail (which as paved) as a way to get a little dirt under my feet. It's pleasant, but far too short.
