Oak Ridge

Nice, quiet and uncrowded hike through a secondary growth forest of oak, beech, tulip poplar and sweetgum. Provides an interesting chance to see the underlying bedrock of this area where the stream has cut down to it (the "Cascades"), which appears to be a gneiss or schist ( though I'm not a geologist). Recommended for those living in the Northeast Forsyth, Northwest Guilford Area who want to get in a quick hike or trail run close to home.For those living further away, I would not recommend driving great distances to come here unless you happen to be passing through.Me and my dog had the trail all to ourselves on a sunny Sunday afternoon.
