The 1.5-mile trail is interesting and different from the park's other trails. It meanders approximately 350 feet below the major overlooks offering the hiker a different prospective of the park. The rare Dutchman's Breeches spring wildflower grows along this path. The flower is only 6-12 inches in height and has white petals in the shape of loose trousers hanging upside down, which is how it received its name. The terrain can be rocky at times so it is wise to watch ones footing. The trail is blazed in orange and moderately difficult.

Directions: From Haysi, VA, Breaks Interstate Park is 7 miles east of Elkhorn City, Kentucky and 8 miles north of Haysi, Virginia on Rt. 80. Detailed trail maps are available at park office.
