The trailhead is located at the restored orchard lot along Bethania-Rural Hall Road. It travels uphill through the woods to an open field and loops back for a short under-one-mile hike. The easiest parking is located at the Bethania Visitor Center at the intersection of Main Street and Bethania Road. This will double the length of the walk, while allowing you to pass several historic homes and buildings in the village.Show more
