Mountains-To-Sea Trail/Section 4

Section 4 of this iconic trail runs through the county just north of Old Fort and Marion. A favorite site to pick up the trail is Woods Mountain Trail, accessible outside the Woodlawn Picnic Area. Park there and follow the directions for Woods Mountain Trail. The picnic area has no street address, the Google map shows the entrance to Green Mountain Road, a few yards away from the picnic area entry point. Click the link to download the section trail map.
