The Derby Hill trail starts at the trailhead across from the parking lot entrance and winds through the woods, then lands you at the bottom of the legendary "Derby Hill." After a breath-taking climb to the top, race down the other side and zip through the woods to a gravel road leading to the Phil Snider trailhead.

Access Info

Use the trailhead across from the parking lot entrance and take a right turn.
