On another gorgeous Fall day, we walked for a couple miles along the South Hill Recreation Way. Our original plan, hiking Logan Hill in Candor, was thwarted by a steep and narrow one-lane dirt road with no place to park out of the way near the trailhead–I’ll bet the trail doesn’t get used a lot. We decided to look into the South Hill trail as a Plan B since we have been curious about it having driven past many times.
The trail is easy, relatively flat, and was particularly gorgeous this time of the year. The east half of the trail is very scenic with beautiful hardwood trees and dramatic steep gullies and gorges on either side. The west half is through a more residential area, not nearly as scenic, and is busier.
We can imagine this trail must be quite busy all year round with convenient access by locals to walking, jogging, bicycling, and skiing.
