Route: "This trail climbs east up the slopes opposite Tony Grove area. The trail begins as [a] gravel road and... turns into a shaded single path."

Along the way, the trail forks with the Worm Fence Spring Trail (stay left) and the Turkey Trail (stay right). At the top of the climb, the trail intersects Sinks Road 055.

"This trail is part of the Great Western Trail. It is generally better to go in the spring and early summer."
