At A Glance


0.7 mi one-way

Difficulty Rating: 0.7 (Easy)
Steepness: Climbs Gently
Tread Condition: Few Obstacles

Trail Number: 665

This trail is located in the Bent Creek area. For a list of all the trails in that area, see the Bent Creek trails list page.


Easy trail with a beautifully engineered creek crossing on the upper end. From Boyd Branch Road, the trail is graveled to the creek crossing, which also has a hard gravel bottom and large flat paving stones on either side. The rest of the trail is smooth and gently climbing through a young forest on an old road bed.

Can be combined with Boyd Branch Road to make a nice, short, easy loop hike.

Jordan M. said: Billy: good idea, and eventually we hope to do just that. If we had enough time, we'd put directions to each trailhead for each trail in the entire network. To start, we're focusing on heavily-used trails that we call our best Hikes and Rides. Thanks for your comments!
