Arlene C. on Grassy Branch Trail
This is a hard climb out
Great hike for those that want to get messy! It had rained a lot this past summer so the water was high, past my knees in some areas, and muddy trail path. Some of the path had been washed away, so it was a bit difficult to find at times. But overall a great adventure! The directions are simpler than stated. Around mile 12 (i believe) past indian boundary and eagle gap trail, you will see a sign directing you to the parking lot "Grassy Gap". If you reach rattlesnake overlook, you went too far. The trailhead is to the left side of parking lot, a little difficult to find because it is set back a ways.
