An inspirational trail takes you through open meadows, cornfields, and dense pine forest and past a scenic pond. Nature quotes adorn the trees as you meander along the Little Gunpowder Falls. Locals refer to this area of Sweet Air as a best-kept secret. At the back side of the parking lot, a sign at the trailhead reads barley pond loop, though this path is also the white-blazed Little Gunpowder Trail.
We’ll begin by heading to the left on this wide-open trail, which has some grass and some stone. A meadow on the left filled with wildflowers and dandelions comes into view just before a junction with a cornfield. The trail, obviously very exposed, skirts the perimeter of the cornfield.
