Floral Trail

Floral Trail sign, dark brown metal with gold lettering

Floral Trail is around 0.4 miles in length, connecting the Dogwood and Honeysuckle Trails. Literally "uphill both ways,” the Floral Trail crosses Hot Springs Mountain Drive in a valley, with one end on North Mountain and the other on Hot Springs Mountain.The trailhead is on Hot Springs Mountain Drive, 50 yards past Happy Hollow jug fountain. Take the right, you cross the drive and follow a zigzag path to a shelter at the Honeysuckle Trail intersection. To the left, a mortared stone staircase climbs to a gravel path alive with squirrels in autumn and bright with dogwoods in spring.The trail joins the Lower Dogwood Trail loop at a mortared stone bench and a distance marker; here you can go left to Arlington Trail or right to the Upper Dogwood Trail.
