Went out to Jacks Valley for a day hike recently. What a view as can be seen here.
The trailhead is located just west of Jacks Valley Elementary School at the top of the hill on the right side of the road. It’s a gradual climb used by hikers and mountain bikers too. This time of year is good to go due to the snakes in hibernation. Summertime is a different story though. Be safe!
