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
