This is not how I hiked the trail, I got off the Wild Azalea Trail to a loop and back to the start point to allow hikers to find a 8 mile trail with a loop to return to the parking area. Not sure why All Trails changed me track. I will not spend the time uploading, when they change my track. Ferdara
The beginning of the trail was not well marked. However, the rest of the trail was well marked and easily followed. The trail goes around Kinkaid Lake with very nice views of the Lake. Part of the trail passes through a camping area that is available on the Lake. The camping area is pleasant and comfortable. The trail also can connect to the rest of the Wild Azalea Trail for a longer hike if desired.
