Nice, easy trail. Well maintained.

Hiked here a few weeks ago, another or many many hikes on Springer. Highly recommend this section for almost any hiker as its not too strenuous.

Nice hike. Three Forks is not really marked. This hike you start up the AT to Springer Mtn. And after about 2.2 miles you switch and comeback on the Benton MacKay trail. You can continue on at the intersection of the AT/BM trails and go to Springer. It is about 1.9 miles from there so this adds 3.8 to the hike. Make sure drive in on DoubleGap. I went out the other way and my Honda Civic was not happy but we survived.

Fairly easy trail... enough to keep it interesting. I agree with other hikers the view at the peak would be better in the winter. Vegetation obstructs most of the view.

Caught this one on an overnight from Springer to Hawk Mountain shelter. No views except the limited one at the top of Springer, Long Falls would be worth the effort if that's as far as you're going. This would be a much more scenic hike in the winter.

Great day hike area. Good for camping too.

quiet beautiful trail.
