Steep ravines, Beautiful boulderfield, Excellent trail grading This a great little slice of the FHT that is capable for most all ages. I took a four year old and a thirteen year old with no problem. The hike gives you the feel of deep woods due to the incredible terrain. The trail has only one real tricky area for small kids but other than that it is a great stroll through beautifully ravined country. There is a great boulderfiled with a natural shelter if it rains. We climbed up to the big boulder shelter and had lunch. It's not a particularly challenging hike just a peaceful hike through some beautiful country. Enjoy and I'll see you on the trail!!!
We hiked from laurel valley to the top of Sassafras Mountain. It's 4.7 miles with a pretty consistent incline the whole way. It was very well maintained and a great hike! We definitely got a good workout!
Great trail and well maintained.
