We would like to introduce Old Timer, a 2.64 mile beginner/intermediate hike-only trail.
Hikers, trail runners, and dog walkers can explore the vast eastern portions of the more than 450-acre Chestnut Mountain property on this 2.64-mile trail that connects from Turnpike to the middle of Papertown Express. Old Timer goes through several different types of forests and winds near some large old-growth trees and over some cool small rock formations. Despite the trail not going to the top, it still features a great deal of elevation change as it navigates in and around the deep contours of the lower mountain while providing views of the upper mountain and allowing park visitors to get deep into the forest. Hikers can take this trail in either direction giving you two different experiences and views!
