Miss covers everything. Red spruce dominate forest. When the sun is coming in from the West it is almost like walking into a candle lit cathedral.

I have hiked this trail as a part of loop with the middle fork trail. If starting the trail from the middle fork be prepared for a long steep uphill hike. The trail is well defined however there are several large trees that are down on the trail. After climbing to the top, the trail follows along a ridge and has areas of moss covered trails and huge rocks. There are only a couple of camp sites on top of Big Beechy mountain and no water. The trail itself is approx. 7 miles. We hiked it backwards down the mountain and camped at the middle fork river intersection. There is a beautiful waterfall at this junction and lots of well used camp sites. We saw no one on this trail and the hike is highly recommended as part of a loop with middle fork trail.
