This 2.6 miles tail is open to horses, mountain, bikes, and foot traffic. Wildlife sightings are common among the meadows and the trail is known as a great spot for novice mountain bikers.

From its southern end near a horse camping area, the trail winds through fields and hardwood forests along the south fork of the Jacks River. It fords the river once before ending at Forest Service Road 126A. Wildlife sightings are a common occurrence in the grassy meadows. This is a good ride for novice mountain bikers and horseback riders. The Benton MacKaye hiking trail merges with this trail for a short distance.
