Very beautiful scenery. We did between 5 and 6 mile round trip. nice clean air
Nice walk along the south branch of mills river. Several nice camp spots. But they get used fairly often. But a pretty easy walk all the way. A good 10 mile loop is, "south mills river road to wagon gap trail to turkey pen gap trail back to the parking area", this adds couple of difficult trails to make it more of a hike. Took us about 5:17 minutes at 1.45 mph average.
