Fun trail from three fork you get a beautiful approach along the extended AT. If you go at the right time of year you'll get to meet some through hikers departing or finishing their journey.

Definitely a nice but challenging trail

Not too strenuous. Did not see much wildlife but evidence of bears everywhere--watch your step!

The Alltrails app is incorrect, I tried to use it to take me to the trailhead but I ended up on a wild goose chase. Bummer.

We had a blast out here biking! Definitely challenging at some points but tons of fun as you ride from west to east.

Trail Run: ran in clockwise direction - very nice trail, well maintained. Has some good elevation changes (ups & downs), generally less strenuous than Bull Mountain climbs. 2 wide creek crossings, didn't see a way to keep from getting wet, but only knee deep. Will definitely do this trail again. Makes me want to get back up there for some mtb'ing.

Two things to note about the trail: 1. Alltrails lists it as 7.6 miles, it is actually 10 - when following the Orange blazes. 2. The location of the trailhead is way off in the map on Alltrails. It is not located on Black Mountain Rd, it is off 52 on Nimblewill Church Rd - just west of Dahlonega.
