This maple tree has roots deeply embedded in the hillside, and even though the flow of the stream when it floods has exposed them the maple grows tall and reaches straight up for the sky.
Locals may know this as the “rope swing tree”, along Robinson Run, right off the Panhandle Trail. A favorite spot.
