Connects from the rear of the warming hut, crosses Spruce Run Trail and ends at the southern leg of Spruce Run Trail near the Burma parking.

The north end starts as bouldery descending to the Spruce Run stream crossing. Flowy to its crossing of Spruce Run Trail. Short dogleg on Spruce and turn left into the driveway to a cottage and veer right to begin a rocky gradual climb before leveling off.

The south segment between the Spruce intersections is best ridden northbound.

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/lmwebcam for webcam.

Shares a stream crossing with the yellow blazed Laurel Highlands Hiking Trail (LHHT). No bikes permitted on LHHT where it branches off.
