Dry Ridge Trail (Big Hill Pond State Park)

Trail along a lake to an observation tower


The trail begins on the northeast side of the lake. It follows the shoreline around to the lake's tributary (Dismal Branch), then follows the tributary for a short time before crossing it and heading back up the shore on the opposite side.

After a time, the trail turns uphill toward the observation tower. The tower rests atop the highest peak of the park, and allows for some stunning views.

From the observation tower, the trail turns downhill and leads to its end at Tuscumbia Bend Shelter.
