What to know
Named for a farmer, this trail was the first road to the crest of Mount Magazine. During the 1800s, wagons hauled produce from the mountaintop to the valley using this path. This trail starts just east of the visitor center and ends at the horse camp field. Features include: historic home sites, wildflowers, escaped domestic flowers, woodland songbirds, stone fences, and ruins of a swimming pool built in the 1920s. Mountain bikes are allowed on this trail. Bikers and hikers should be aware and alert. Bikers, signal your presence to hikers when overtaking.
