Did the section from 474 to about a half mile north of Eggleston Hill Road- about a 10 mile jaunt. My first time here. Scenery was great. This section of the trail was moderate in my estimation. Detour right, through the middle where they are logging forcing you out onto the road for a bit more than a mile and onto snake forest road (that sounds inviting).
Some very nice platforms near a picturesque pond that are calling me back to overnight!

gorgeous trail and spectacular scenery!!

this is such a nice trail, one of my faves

Trail is well maintained. Scenery is amazing.

Nice trail. We ran into some hunters though. It cut out hike short.

There are some new single track mountain bike trails that come off of the Overland near Eggleston Hill Rd. trail sign

Beautiful way to start the day!

Great. Did the entire trail in a day. Started at S and ended at A. About 24 miles. Trail is well marked and very well maintained. Amazed at how well it is taken care of.
You go through a few farm fields around Bates Rd. (with cows in the field). Can be very wet with manure if it has been raining. You can bypass the farms by following the road and hooking back up to the trail.
Wonderful for hiking. Enjoy!
