Finley Cane Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Although you must cross a road during this excursion, the trails on this hike are lightly used, offering a pleasantly undulating loop with very little climbing, considering the mountainous setting. First, you will walk among old homesites, the trail gently winding along the slope of Turkeypen Ridge. Then you’ll follow an old road to the historic Bote Mountain Trail. Finally, Bote Mountain Trail will lead you to Finley Cane Trail along the northern base of Bote Mountain to complete your loop."
