Overview

Shortly after joining this trail, you'll come to an old foundation. All the structure is gone, and nature is filling in the area, but it is still substantial. You might take some time and relive the past and wonder what it must have been like to live here in ages long ago. Although short, the shelf road is rather impressive. The road is well maintained but it has been cut from the cliffside midway up from the valley bottom. It offers a nice view of the valley below, especially when the river is running high. So, if you are running other trails in the area, this trail offers an interesting excursion for 30 - 45 minutes, however, it is not a destination spot.
