Highlight: Barnwell Mountain Recreation Area: Linda Gail
Linda Gail provides an enjoyable option to the Main Road when headed to the central region of the park. The trail is also one of only a few with an improved campsite actually on the trail. Complete with a forest canopy and an extra credit off-camber section (purely optional) the trail can provide a pleasant refreshment for those just entering the park and needing to reach the interior of the park and the campsites in the area.
