       Just a note here: The trail near here called Unknown is the actual Panties Trail, The reason behind this is that we found several bags of women's clothes right near where the trail crosses the Parkway which at the time did not exist. About a week later we found the panties all hung in trees. We used this trail to access The Abyss which was originally known as Extension Heights.
