It was an ok trail. It was wide and even and mostly on the shade, so that was nice. But it definitely wasn't a loop and you could hear road noise for the majority if the tail.

Directions put me on Smith Lake dam Rd and had my road location on the road just about 1/10th of a mile from the boat launch. On one side was a chained off dirt road access that was clearly marked Private Property on the opposite side of the road was another chained off dirt road access to a radio tower. It was labeled tower access road and no "No Trespassing sign was noted & the pin marker was located on that side of the road. We went down the road till we were 90deg parallel with Pin marker so we went off trail to see if we could get to the pin marker and we did make it to the marker but were not on any type of trail. The description on this states it is a paved path. Either the GPS coord's are off or? On the way back out we saw a No Tresspassing sign laying on the ground just inside the gated entrance - so am assuming I shouldn't have even been on that site.

Love this place, but there has been more and more trash being left behind. I was take a trash bag and gather up trash from the trail. They have trash cans at the entrance and down by the creek.

That hill is a killer, but so worth it.

Stunned. Ready to make plans for an overnight trip! Took it very slow going in around 7:30, hung around the trail end for a few hours, cooled down with a swim, and hiked back up and out surprisingly quicker than I expected. Pack was heavy with water but proved to be the right choice. Super stoked about returning when the leaves fall to expand the views.

Today was our first time on the NP trail. The hike was good but the highlight was when a small fawn, about 18"H×18"L came right up to me and sniffed my leg. I've never had that experience before, at least not in the wild. we will definitely be back!
