Trails

This area contains many miles of maintained trails designated for hiking, cross-country skiing, and equestrian use.

    High Point Trail
    This old CCC trail connects the Mt. Davis Picnic Area and the High Point. This 0.8 mile trail provides easy walking. It goes through the Natural Area, and part of the area destroyed by fire in 1951.

    Mt. Davis Trail
    This 0.1 mile trail connects Shelter Rock Road with the High Point. Many of the trees and plants common to the area are found here.

    Shelter Rock Trail
    This 1.0 mile trail originates on the southeast portion of the observation loop, and exits onto Shelter Rock Road. Points of interest along the trail include a stand of pitch pine, the stone quarry from which stone was used to build a shelter at the High Point, sorted stone net, and frost and water pockets.

    Tub Mill Run Trail
    This rocky 2.8 mile trail connects High Point Trail with South Wolf Rock Road. This trail winds along the east slope of Negro Mountain, paralleling Tub Mill Run for part of its length. Along the stream, large blocks of moss-covered sandstone are found.

    Timberslide Trail
    This 0.5 mile trail connects Tub Mill Trail with Shelter Run Road.

    Laurel Run Trail
    Originally built as a CCC fire trail, this 1.9 trail stretches from Christner Road to South Wolf Rock Road.

    Wolf Rock Trail
    Only 0.8 miles long, this path was built by the CCC and joins Laurel Run Trail and South Rock Road.

    Shelter Rock Road
    This 1.6 mile road, which is closed to vehicular traffic, serves as a hiking trail and forms the eastern boundary of the Natural Area.

    Livengood Trail
    Livengood meanders 1.1 miles between Laurel Run Trail and South Wolf Rock Road.

Motorized vehicles are not permitted on these trails.
