Salt Stump Trail is a continuation of Middle Mountain Trail. This seldom traveled path is excellent for viewing wildlife. Words such as salt and suck licks originated from the natural composition of the Douthat area which are small springs formed when salty sulphur drains from the underground. Wildlife, deer in particular, are drawn to these waters for their sodium content.
