This is One of the more difficult trails in the Boyd big tree area. It starts off on a slight decent on a wide gravel path, then makes a hard left to continue down to the creek where it becomes increasingly narrow. On the way down to the creek there are stone steps. The trail crosses the creek by means of a small "stone bridge". Once across the creek the trail starts to gain elevation while becoming increasingly rocky and full of large roots from the surrounding trees. Eventually the trail comes to a split. To the left the trail takes a steeper ascent and to the right it is more gradual. After completing the loop the trail joins back up with the first section where it follows the creek again. This trail is marked with blue blazes.

Very pretty trail! About 0.4 miles in and you reach the creek. Parts of the trail are wet. Kind of like hiking through an extremely shallow stream. This is even better than hiking along the creek. Our dog could get short drinks along the way.

A nice moderately challenging trail. Probably the second most difficult trail in the conservation area next to the janie trail.
