This trail is short and features a bridge and park n crawl. 

What used to be a road, is now just an access point. We would like to turn this area into trails if possible. This little trail crosses a creek via an old bridge and it has a gate just after the park and crawl. Legend has it that hunters get lost here and end up on the prison property to the west... which also happens to be their gun range. Another story here is there was a boy scout camp around here in the past.

I like the scenery on this trail, though it's rather short. It would be great if the two prison trails could be reconnected, but for now as other reviewers have said it ends at a parking area. The rocks are fun though...

If you are looking to crawl the rocks, be sure to pick one that's flat on the bottom.

Another scenic trail. There’s two ends to the trail that don’t connect at the moment. Both ends are pretty neat. Nice rock area in the wayside/park and crawl area

This trail could be the lead to more trail here on the abandoned road. Lots of rocks to crawl on in the lot and the swamp looks spooky at dusk.
