Trail is overgrown and not well maintained. Loop trail is hard to identify.

This was my first ever hike. It was beautiful, but not a great hike for a first hike. I recommend for someone who's used to hiking and does it often. It's mostly up hill. Had a great time, but won't try anymore hikes over 4 miles anytime soon.

We hiked this on January 10, 2018 and saw no other hikers. The sign for Bullpen road is missing at 107, look for a road marked 1100. The forest itself is the real payoff on this trail. We had a nice picnic by the river. I couldn’t find Ellicott’s rock. There are a lot of trees down, many from recent storms. The trail is passable but there are a lot of obstacles. It was rainy and cloudy so views were limited.

Trail was difficult to follow but worth every minute!

This is a great day-hike trail. It has a bit of an anticlimactic finish, but the views along the flower lined river are great the whole trail. Be prepared, though. The trail gets a bit narrow after the bridge. It also has quite a few downed trees and some slippery spots after some rain.

My favorite section of this trail by far. Stays w/ the river all the way w/ some great swimming holes. Not a lot of trash or people to run into and not very strenuous. Check out spoon auger falls at burrell's ford on the way back to finish the trip.

Enjoyable hike, for camping and fishing. high traffic through burrells Ford area but get more than a mile out the traffic thins and you can enjoy the trail more. backpacked for about 3-4 hours, stopping to fish along the way.
