Chestnut Springs Trail
Distance: 1.1 miles
Blaze Color: Yellow-Red
Difficulty Level: MODERATE
Key Feature: north to south exposure
A detailed map of all of the trails within Wintergreen maintained by the foundation is available at the front desk of Wintergreen Resort’s Mountain Inn and at Trillium House.
The north end of the trail leaves the stream and yellow birches and rhododendron of the Shamokin Gorge and enters oak-hickory forest type. As the trail enters south facing territory, several small streams cross the trail. This southern end is ideal for spring wildflowers like bloodroot, wild ginger, and violets; all of which bloom in April. Watch for stinging nettle (long pants recommended). Use caution in winter.
