This section of the trail is a relatively easy hike with great views of Big Knob and Bald Knob, two of the highest points in the Allegheny Mountains. The trail runs along the side of the mountain and through a couple wildlife clearings before reaching a Forest Service gate on FDR 125D. The orange plastic diamonds that have marked the trail stop at this gate. From the gate the trail is easy to follow as it follows FDR 125D to FDR 125 (Dolly Ann). This is a steep section of trail that is used primarily by four wheel drive vehicles and is muddy after rain.
