Part of the Heyward Forest Song Mountain trails funded by CAMBC, Switchback Lullaby was designed primarily as a climbing trail, but has various berms as it connects from the middle of the Stream Trail to the top of Song Mountain. A variety of switchbacks for the first half, some steep, but not crazy steep, which opens into a flatter trail as it reaches the top.
