Solitude, rock formations, older growth forest This trail has two personalities. In parts it is a wonderful trail through some of the older growth forest. This trail is one of the only marked trails in sipsey. The trail markings are spaced orange flags. Towards the 2.5 mile point the reason for these markers becomes dramatically apparent. Due to the huge numbers of unmanaged blow downs the trail at times becomes unrecognizeable and requires significant bushwhacking from flag to flag. This trail is almost unused and sports few if any established camp sites. This gives the advantage of being a true back woods experience, but also puts the responsiblity on hiker to be sure to leave any campsites in pristine condition.
