Description

(0.4 MILES)
DIFFICULTY: EASY - MODERATE

The beautiful 0.4-mile Kentucky Coffeetree Trail must be accessed from other trails. To begin your hike, follow Warbler Road about 0.3-miles and take a left (this begins Wilderness Lake Trail). You will walk to an intersection of three trails—take the middle branch to proceed onto Coffeetree. From here you will traipse along a ridgetop and can observe far down the hillsides, where you’re sure to see springtime wildflowers. The Trail then leads you steadily downward toward a lush valley. Turn left and follow along the streambed. This area tends to get muddy, which makes it a great spot to observe animal tracks left by deer and raccoon. Pass through the big tree, cross the bridge, and veer left to join Pawpaw Valley Trail. You’ll soon find yourself back at Warbler Road. Your combined hike distance will be approx. 0.9-miles.
