Intersecting with Middle Mountain on its upper end, Salt Stump is fast, rockin’ descent through big trees and dense forest. Be sure to look for bears on the upper reaches of the trail on the steep hillsides. It is a long fast down hill that makes the whole Stony Run Climb worthwhile
It is blazed Orange

Access Info

From Middle Mountain at the top and then Pine Tree Trail, Laurel View, Backaway Hollow Trail on the way down and Beaver Dam Campground at the bottom
