    Miles W reviewed Sand Cave and White Rocks Via Ewing Trail

    The Sand Cave and White Rocks Overlook are both awesome! I had seen pictures, but Sand Cave felt so much bigger in person. And the view from White Rocks was great. The actual trail was honestly just okay, in my opinion, but it was worth it to get to Sand Cave and White Rocks. It really is nearly all uphill for the first few miles, so that was definitely a challenge.

    Short version: The trails are overgrown and should probably be avoided (at least for now).

    Long version: My dad and I used to like doing the Kirby Trail East (this trail) and the Kirby Trail West (on the other side of the street, attached to the small parking lot). It's been about 5 or 6 years though. But I was feeling nostalgic today and decided to check them out. The parking lot right off Kirby was closed and this should have been a sign, but I decided to just keep going and park a little farther down on the street and then walk up (this was a bad idea, don't do it!). I started by going up the staircase of the East trail, but it was totally overgrown. I continued a little farther after the staircase before deciding to turn around. I then went across the street to the West trail, but it was pretty badly overgrown too, so I decided just to head back to my car. All in all, it was an experience and kind of an adventure, so I'll give it 2 stars. But I would not recommend it. I am just noticing that some of the more recent recordings start back behind Aiken somewhere instead of at the old parking lot on Kirby, so maybe it's better that way??

    Pretty good loop, especially considering its location. Lots of intersecting trails though and it can be tricky to know if you're actually following the route. Load the route into your recorder and follow that, double check yourself at the intersections. Also, the route that is currently posted (as of 8/12/17) actually does the loop twice. It's really closer to 4 miles with an elevation gain of about 500 feet. UPDATE (8/27/18): The route posted now correctly lists the trail at 4.2 miles.

    Great trail, nice way to catch both the Indian Staircase and Cloud Splitter in a single loop.
