Micheaux State Forest - Pole Steeple

Distance: 9.7 miles


Extended dayhike loop from Fuller Lake to Pole Steeple (from midatlantichikes.com)
  • Overview

  • Iron Run
  • AT

From Fuller Lake, take the AT to Pole Steeple Trail. The first 2 miles are fairly strenuous, especially in the summer. At some point the trail turns into a black-marked trail that directly leads to Pole Steeple. The view is certainly worth it. From Pole Steeple "shimmy" down between the cracks, which is easier said than done, especially with a 10lbs pack. The crack/cliff is about 300ft. There was a fair amount of hikers that just took the easy 1m route to Pole Steeple from the parking lot on the SE side of Laurel Lake. From Laurel Lake, the route takes you along a rural road through a fairly populated area with log cabins and a YMCA camp. The route continues on the level and easy Buck Ridge Trail, the Daugherty Trail and the adventurous Kopenhaver Trail (cross a creek on a log) back to the parking lot.
