AKA "apocalypse cow"... Old USFS pack trail that has been forgotten, over grazed, and unmaintained. Perhaps best as an out and back from Florida Rd. since the upper section is hard to find.

Very difficult to find the trail a few miles off of Missionary Ridge. The trail seems to fizzle out into small cow trails, unmaintained hiking...

This trail shouldn't even be on maps. Overgrown, cowed out, and going back to nature!
