One of the newer trails in this area, some long straight streches along with some windy sections. Has probably the longest sustained descent (or climb) in all of the Geenway trails. Check out the vintage boiler at the south end of the trail (old sawmill site).

Access Info

Can be accessed off of Bears just after the Old Trail, Tyner Finder & Bears Junction or from the other direction off of the Sawmill Trail just down from where Carters Cut comes onto the Sawmill Trail. Watch for trail signs.

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!
