Beautiful Day Hike

This trail is very secluded given its location close to the city. If you're a local who's looking for a few hours out in the woods without having to drive several hours, it's a good one. There are significant inclines and multiple streams and springs along the way. The only negative I've encountered is that there have been multiple people who's cars were broken into while hiking (seems to be an ongoing issue in Percy Warner Park)
