South Trail (formerly Barbara Whipple Trail or Whipple South) is a fairly stout climb from the Bridge to Bridge trail up to County Road 304. This is one of the oldest trails in the BV area and will see heavy foot traffic with off-leash animals. Please take caution and be courteous to other trail users when descending.
