Connector Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"The Connector Trail connects the major trails in the Savage Gulf State Natural Area and is the only trail giving access from one side of the natural area to the other, crossing the three main gulfs along the way. At rare times of high water, the Connector Trail is impassable. A side trail leads to the Decatur Savage Historic Site. The original cabin, built in 1910, had some later additions, but they were removed when the cabin site was included in the natural area. Cator Savage, who built the original cabin, was a descendant of Samuel Savage, the early settler for whom Savage Gulf is named. Camping is available at Hobbs Cabin and the Sawmill Camp Area."
