Another great trail in the Porkies, this one is sure to excercise your calves. This trail leads through some great stands of virgin timber and is usually found well marked and in great condition. s with any overnight camping in the park, BEWARE of BLACK BEARS. Bear poles are available at most designated camping spots in the park and you will need them!
