Sweetwater Creek State Park

BLUE (NATURE OR NON-GAME WILDLIFE) TRAIL

BLUE (NATURE OR NON-GAME WILDLIFE) TRAIL
2 miles one way. Blazed blue. Rated moderate to difficult. A steep climb down to the falls deck.

The Blue Trail intersects with the Red Trail near the overlook of the New Manchester mill ruins at the one-mile mark. This trail was specifically designed to highlight the park?s non-game wildlife and plant communities. The trail winds through several lovely stream coves and follows the ridges overlooking Sweetwater Creek. There is an amazing diversity of habitats here, with many species of wildflowers, ferns, shrubs and trees that make the Appalachian foothills (Piedmont) such a biologically rich and diverse place. The Blue Trail is a quieter alternative to the Red Trail and allows hikers to return to the trailhead via a loop instead of backtracking.
