This hike will have a short shuttle. Beginning the hike on Grapeyard Ridge, we will go briefly off-trail to an old home site, spring house and cemetery. Then we will rejoin Grapeyard Ridge to pass the remains of a steam engine originally intended for sawing lumber. We will have lunch at campsite 32, then continue hiking down a beautiful man-way. The man-way follows a creek where we will view remains of home sites and see a very interesting cemetery. Off-trail might involve climbing over, under or around trees.
