Victor Hiking Trails

.5-mile one way, mostly woods hilly

June 2008

This foot path is probably the least used trail in our system. Which is a shame because it may be the prettiest of them all! It is a jem of a little trail.


The entrance is off of Benson Road, where there is little parking and not near by. The entrance currently is easy to miss and quite a scramble up the road cut. (This is on the list for our volunteers to improve.)

Pond at the end of Royal View Trail.

This trail is relatively short, almost exclusively in the woods. There is considerable up and down and switchbacks -- watch the blue blazes -- before it ends at a small "kettle pond" in the woods.

The name Royal View is from the nearby subdivision and street, and is very fitting.
