Great trail! First half open forest, second half tall trees, walking along Creekbank was nice.

Really nice fitness trail no briars!

A few creek crossings make it a little more than easy. Very easy to follow and elevation change is not bad at all. Took the dog on this one and finished with no problems.

Jumped deer right by the trail. saw a bobcat stalking prey 25 yards away on the trail! Be prepared for allot of briars and some downed trees across trail.watch your feet saw a coral snake on the trail.

We prefer hills or mountains with changing scenery and terrain, but for this area this was a very nice trail, just enough roots and creek beds to make it more interesting than just a walk.

We got 8.42 miles hiking the North Wilderness Loop from Trailhead 3 to 2 and back via the LSHT.
Very narrow trail! Very "snakey" - I mean I fully expected to see many snakes along the way because of the overgrowth and many fallen trees along it. Thankfully did not see one on this beautiful warm day.
Yesterday we hiked the Richard's Loop and found it currently burn cleared. I hope they clear this one soon. Still, we enjoyed it. There are a few difficult places to cross - especially for a short girl like me, lol. But it's doable when dry to getting dry like today.

3/18 They've done a lot of burning in this aka Richard's Loop per the LSHT map. But that's good! And the contrast in color is striking. New spring flowers and grass is vivid against the ashes and black coal along the 6+ mile hike.
Few places to cross carefully - down embankment to sandy creeks and up the other side. Watch for rains to make these near impassable. And for snakes! A 2ft racer crossed the trail ahead of me!
Looking forward to the next loop as we hit the LSHT 2017!

A nice little trail. It was a great overcast day for our hike and a good test of the new backpacks. If only it had some real hills it'd be great. The Little Lake is a good destination and stopping place for a bite to eat! (Though there is some discussion on whether it's a Lake or a Pond)
