This trail provides the easiest connection to Rector-Eddie Road and on to Wolf Rocks overlook for beginners parking at Laurel Summit State Park. This singletrack starts part way along the Bog Trail and also experiences a higher usage by other trail users than some of the more remote trails. The trail is level with a few wet areas and rooty areas.

Access Info

Due to the nature of the soil and the ridge top location these trails should be avoided after it has recently rained. This a also a great place to cross country ski in the winter since the Laurel Ridge gets more snow than anywhere else Trails are closed to biking during snow cover. See www.paccsa.org/lrwebcam for webcam.
