It said I was at the right place but not sure. Straight up not a long trail

This trail is not that long but is a nice challenge. Pretty much straight up some rocky terrain with an amazing payoff at the end.

The area between Pilcher's Pond and Snake Creek Gap is a nice hike but not very scenic.

Trail was awesome. If you need an extra cardio boost, try running the trail.

This trail is in my top 10 list! Hard, short, and a good workout if you want to bust it up to the top. We do it like 2-3 times a week on our work lunch break. To the top and back, about 45 min. But of course add sit down time and enjoy the views. For some reason people like to drop their water bottles, so some weeks we take a garbage bag and do clean up. Note: due to very little rain in the area (Oct 2016 now) for the past few months, it is a bit slick and powdery. People do break ankles on this trail. So step carefully. I call this one "difficult" for that reason. But we LOVE IT! And my dog does well, just have to help her up the rocks a few times. Not for beginners at all or those not sure footed.

There is also a little loop trail to the left. It comes back into the main trail. That one is good for trail running and jumping over logs or adding distance to your trek.

Hope this helps!!

Love this trail.

absolutely gorgeous! awesome hike.

The trail could use a little bit of TLC. There are a lot of loose rocks and fallen trees. This trail is definitely not kid-friendly. I would recommend it to experienced hikers.

My girlfriend and I looked for the trailhead in Dalton, Ga but could not find access to the trail, anywhere despite seeing signs for it all over the place.. Sadly, we left disappointed
