Robin H. on Woody Gap to Preachers Rock Trail
Todd H. on DeSoto Falls Trail
Great short hike to interesting waterfall. Unfortunately not flowing much right now. I imagine this is a really pretty waterfall when flowing strong. This is an easy hike virtually all under the forest canopy. USFS campsite also, $12 for campsite $3 day use fee to hike. 2 miles total of one visits both falls.
Very scenic, beautiful setting, hoping to find an open campsite but it was full. Primitive campsites outhouses and tent pads with a grill. Will not return more than likely, but really glad me and the kids got this one checked off our list.
Janice P. on Appalachian Trail: Neels Gap to Hog...
This is my favorite trail so far. The initial walk on the highway threw me off a bit but after .7 miles I saw Neels Gap official start. Parking isn't allowed at Neels Gap unless you are a guest at the cabin. I didn't hike the entire 7.3 miles. I turned around after 5.8 miles when I got to Cow Rock which had an amazing view. The hike took about 6 hours with several stops. I didn't see any water spots along the way. Definitely worth the trip.
