Couldn't get up to the trail because the road was closed.
The route was not into the state park but a backroad through people's driveways. No trespassing signs posted and gated roads.

great trail. very steep steps and intense hike at times but safe trail. I went out and back on the waterfall side which has places to sit and watch the waterfalls.

We started on the Piney Branch trail and decided to take this loop instead. The best part was walking a little bit of the Appalachian Trail. Very easy walk. Made the whole loop in about two hours.

I love this trail. The hexagonal shape rock formation found off the east 0.2 mile spur trail is called Columnar Basalt - the result of gradual cooling of lava from a volcano.

Easy trail, lovely at this time of year! The leaves were vibrant and contrasted amazingly with the bright blue sky. We started where these directions had us drive to at Rattlesnake point overlook. From there we started on the Appalachian trail and then turned left onto Piney trail, then left on pole bridge link trail, left onto Sugarloaf trail which looped us back to the Appalachian trail and back to our starting point. The trail is pretty clearly marked you just have to remember to keep turning left, therefore completing the loop. But we passed many people so I think others start from another way but we enjoyed this way which brought us downhill and then up to the top of the ridge on the Appalachian trail. The slope is very gradual making this a very simple hike.

Pretty nice trail, not very many people on it.
