|Notes and comments:
This trail is 1.1 miles in length, and runs from Shackleford Ridge Park to Mushroom Rock , a spectacular geological formation which is also on the Cumberland Trail North . The trail passes through pleasant woodland, and is mostly level, except for a moderate slope near its eastern end. The trail is fairly easy to see on the ground, although there are no trail marks, and it passes through three path junctions at which it would be easy to take the wrong path - careful navigation is needed, preferably aided by the use of a compass or GPS receiver. In particular, it is easy to miss the right turn at the crossroads on the way back.
