The Fox Run Trail is a half-mile backcountry trail which can be accessed from the Jenkins Mountain Trail or the north west side of the Logger’s Loop Trail.  The Fox Run Trail takes you through a mixed forest (primarily hard woods).  The northern portion of the trail consists of a relatively smooth woods road lined with ferns

The southern portions of the trail cut through cleared areas that were logged several years ago. The trail is quite rough on this section, and the scenery is not particularly attractive.  However, in the coming years, these open areas will fill in with vegetation, gradually becoming an early successional forest, with the possibility of attracting bird species, like the Chestnut-sided Warbler, which thrive in this type of habitat. Because the trail is rough in places, hiking boots are recommended.
