This trail is comprised of two loops resembling a figure eight. The lower loop leads to the Joyce Kilmer Memorial, embedded in a large rock where the loops meet in the middle. The upper loop then continues on, leading past even taller trees, towering overhead as you hike through Poplar Cove. The dogs enjoy several creek and tributary crossings, while you appreciate the sheer size of these massive trees.
