A easy, kind of hidden trail that features a scenic overlook. 3.06 miles with a scenic view in the middle. Along the trail you will cross an old railroad bridge and walk along the Sugar Notch Stream.

First time out there today. Our 4 year old son did great. Well marked, wide, hills with lots of loose rock. Some great views. Saw the cave but the creek was dry.

In need of a clean up - lots of trash, but I really like this trail. It is easy to get to and fairly unpopulated. At the Hanover end there is a gully with a bunch of tiny caves and the temp in that area is always SO cool. It feels wonderful and sometimes there's a great mist flowing over the forest in this spot.
