Trail continues with the fall line motif of Devil Cross until it comes to an abrupt end in a cedar bottomland with a mandatory off camber rock face to flat. The drainage is then crossed by one of Jim Fricker's fabulous bridges, and the trail continues up - more of a blue through here - crosses two more drainages with outstanding bridges, and comes out on a logging road.
