This approximately one mile trail provides a link between the East Hardy Ridge Trail and the Upper Hardy Creek Trail to providing multiple loop options in the backcountry of Beacon Rock State Park. With its majestic bridge across Hardy Creek, lush evergreen forest and enchanting stream crossings, it is a worthy destination in itself.

Although contractors constructed the bridge, WTA volunteers built the rest of the trail over the course of several years. It was first opened to hiker traffic in 2009. During the second phase of construction volunteers built the trail to equestrian standards opening it to horseback riders in 2012.

This trail was made possible by a grant from the Recreation Conservation Office and the NOVA program which uses a portion of state gas taxes to fund motorized and non-motorized trail projects.
