This trail starts at the Boling Park Trailhead and follows the White Blazed 'Trace' trail to the Yellow Trail and Purple Trail. The route returns on the Trace Trail. There is a mix of everything on these trails. There is a flat portion along the Etowah River, hillier portions father back in the woods, and a crushed gravel loop for light exercise. Local boy scout troops make bridges and do upkeep of trails. Very well-maintained and beautiful. Trails are well-marked with colors. Please be sure to wear Orange during hunting season.Show more
