Nothing of interest really along this trail, but is easy with only some parts of rock. Most areas of this state forest have lots of mt laurel and moss to add some color even when the leaves are off the trees, but this trail was really only one where there was hardly any of that at all. The southern portion of Rattling Creek Trail probably is a little more scenic than what is highlighted here.
