This trail is located in the Big Ivy (Coleman Boundary) area. For a list of all the trails in that area, see the Big Ivy (Coleman Boundary) trails list page.


Created for use in the movie "The Last of the Mohicans" (supposedly) and used in the opening scene. Passes through some of the oldest oak and poplar (tuliptree) forest in the area with some very large trees; unfortunately the larger hemlocks in the area are now dead but that makes it easier to see the big hardwoods. Connects with FS 74 at both ends; the upper junction is across from the Upper Corner Rock trail so they can be joined.
