With axe, plow, and gun, the first settlers changed the mountains, cutting into forests that were centuries old. They called this place "Junglebrook" after the dense growths of rhododendron and magnolia that bordered the streams. Between 1883 and 1925 this was the farm of Noah "Bud" Ogle, but the forest is reclaiming it. Along this short trail you will see the cabin, cornfields, and mill of this long-abandoned farmstead. Loop trail distance.....3/4 Mile Round-trip hiking time...30 minutes This is an easy walk.
