Entirely double-track (or side-by-side single-track!), the Heemskirk Track appears as a white serpentine scar bisecting the rolling button-grass plains on which it lies. An undulating climb that crosses several small creeks later offers back all the elevation gained as a flowing descent to Piney Creek. The trail tread is mainly lose quartzite, which has eroded heavily on steeper sections leaving networks of ruts and ridges that reduce the double-track to a few precarious lines.
