Trail head off a fire trail, approximately 50 yards from a gate on Hunting Creek Rd in a sharp left turn. Trail immediately ascends and follows hunting creek until it break to the right and turns into switchbacks. Tunnels of rhododendron run through the switchbacks before leveling out slightly to the beginning of a tributary of Hunting Creek. The tributary leaches out of the ground with deep holes, swampy areas and exposed roots, so watch your footing! Past the swampy area is mostly level for a short distance before ending at the Appalachian Trail just before the AT crosses the Blue Ridge Parkway to Thunder Ridge. No scenic views, lots of small waterfalls, wildflowers in season, marked with blue blazes.
