Began at the upper corridor trail parking lot. From there we took the Mountain trail to the right, past the visitor center up to the summit parking lot via the Grindstone trail then back again.

A long day training for a 28.3 Challenge. Would do most of these trails again.

First to Review

Most of the time you are in a shaded forest area, so although there are not many vistas per se I can see this being a great trail in the summertime. Took my dog and had a really great experience, but added onto the Grindstone Trail to the upper parking lot to add some elevation, views a little bit more cardio. A few downed trees and remnants of a controlled burn were the only real hazards to report.
