This trail can be completed as a loop which totals 3 miles. From the parking lot, pass through the gate at the northeast end of the lot and turn right onto the Mid-State Trail. Follow this decent and cross over Rt 326 to the beginning of the Garlic Trail. At the top of this trail, turn right to follow an old logging road to Blankely Rd (gravel) and turn right. Hike a short distance to scenic vista then turn left and then right to join ATV trail. This section follows the ridge and ends up back at the parking lot. We loved this trail and would hike it again. We saw much wildlife including a wood turtle, an orange salamander, and a wild turkey hen with her six chicks.

A beautiful trail that follows a shallow stream with many rock step crossings.

Gorgeous trail that my sisters and I hike regularly. Never get tired of it. If you make the right at the top of the garlic trail, then follow the gravel road from the top it will take you to the lookouts that ive pictured!
