Golden-winged Warbler is a specialty of this area, and I have had Cerulean in the past at the top of the next hill (where you will see a lot of dumped garbage and a clearing; to your right is a yellow gate with a nice, albeit short trail through mature canopy). For butterfliers, this little stretch offers Indian Skippers and Appalachian Tiger Swallowtails around the dame's rocket that should currently be in bloom.
