This is a new trail that is expected to open in June 2011.

The trail begins at the CCC stone shelter and runs down the Geode Creek valley before climbing to the top of Frenchman’s Bluff. The trail follows Cheatham Road for 1.75 miles and then heads back into the woods toward Blackhawk Point on Frenchman’s Bluff. This point offers a remote and spectacular view of the Cuivre River Valley. The trail follows Frenchman’s Bluff for about three miles, offering scenic views along the route. This section of trail shares about three miles of Cuivre River Trail, which is open to equestrian use. The trail then returns to the Geode Creek valley and shares a section of the Hamilton Hollow Trail before ending at the CCC shelter. Bicyclists should yield the right of way to horses and hikers.
