Tory's Den Trail

This trail begins at the trailhead at the west end of Tory's Den parking lot, located at 1185 Charlie Young Road. The trail's surface is gravel, dirt, and rock. The first half of the trail is open to both hikers and horseback riders. The trail goes downhill from the corner of the parking lot, along the powerline, and then crosses Charlie Young Road. It then meanders through forests and near a small stream, before climbing gradually up the mountain. A sign marks the end of the section that can be used by horses. Hikers can continue up to Huckleberry Ridge and its weathered rock formations. Tory's Den Trail ends at its intersection with Moore's Wall Loop Trail.
