This is a nice short hike, it would be great for beginners. Hopefully you will find a parking place on the Forest Service Road near the trailhead, if not then park at the Cove Creek Caney Bottom Trailhead and hike in the reverse order.The hike is a gradual incline out and therefore easier coming back. The hike takes about 1 hour. The Fall is a great time to hike so that you can experience the beautiful foilage.
