    It was a very warm day so the lake was a welcomed relieve. This was not a terribly difficult hike. We did the loop going counter clockwise, the second half was the most scenic.

    I am not a fan of this trail. It is very difficult for sure but it is also very rocky with loose golfball & baseball sized rocks. This makes for a tough assent and decent. There are no views from the top or along the trail. Gibson Gap is a much better choice in my opinion and it is equal in challenge. Note: This review is for the Chadwell Gap Trial ONLY, once you reach the Ridge Trail at the top of the mountain Hensley Settlement and White Rocks are awesome with amazing views!
    BTW, the description speaks of a waterfall, I didn't see a waterfall, maybe I was going during the wrong time of year.

    Great hike! The last portion before the falls is rather challenging but well worth the trip.

    THIS LOOP IS NOT LOCATED IN CLYDE, NC! It is in Waynesville, NC beginning at Big Creek Campground. Completed this 17.1 trek in one day. Not sure why someone thought this was a one star trail (other than looking in the wrong location for it) but they are wrong. This is listed as a moderate hike, for a two day overnight possibly, but it is a difficult one day hike. The loop consisted of Big Creek to Swallow Fork to Baxter Creek. Total mileage 17.1 miles. The downhill from Mount Sterling fire tower is steep, tough on the knees. So your decision becomes up the steep trail or down it. We chose down. It was a tough but wonderful nine hour day.
