6.4 miles round trip
Trail Difficulty Rating: Intermediate
This trail is more narrow than the easy (green) loops in the Arrowhead Trail system. Trail tread width is 20” to 24” with tight turns and mildly steep hills. From Point N, ride toward Point M along a ridge line, then drop down through a cool rhododendron tunnel. From Point M, zip around the wide switchback series toward Point L. On the northern side of the Craigs Branch Trail (administrative gravel road), explore an older forest than you will find on the rest of the Arrowhead Trail system and catch glimpses of the gorge through the trees. Expect to encounter small obstacles along the trail, rocky sections and tight turns. Runners and bikers will enjoy the thrilling flow of the trail design.
Connections can be made from this trail to LeCroy Trail and Adena Trail. The Dalton Trail junctions off the Clovis Trail and can be accessed at three junctions with the Craig Branch Trail.
