This trail parallels the River Scene Trail on top of the bluffs before plunging into the Kiefer Creek valley. The trail then follows the south bank of Kiefer Creek. There is also a creek crossing that connects this trail with Grotpeter Trail. The trail was originally built to allow bicyclists access to the bluff area, but it is also an excellent hiking trail. Features along the trail include beautiful ridge top views, fern covered bluffs and a gravel strewn creek bed. The trail is named in honor of the Lone Wolf Club, a speak easy/tavern from the historic resort era. The club is adjacent to the park near the trail on private property.

Nice little trail with some challenging hills and a good variety of scenery: cliftop views, deep woods with steep sides, and a long creekside stroll.

I started out on the Lone Wolf trail and took a wrong turn onto the River Scene Trail. I noticed at about .2 mile after I should have turned and decided to keep going. Lots of great vistas overlooking the Meremac on both trails. The first .5 miles is a pretty steep incline but the views are worth it. That said, both trails could use more distinct markings. Orange and red are a little too similar for trails that intersect. Also, the River Scene Trail could use more markings toward the end. If it hadn't been for the recording feature in the All Trails app, I might still be wandering around in the woods.

Nice trail - steep incline in the beginning. Great views of the river at the top.
