Hiked this trail at the end of May as a 10-mile loop, hitting both Strickler Knob and Duncan Knob. It was a good 5.5 hour workout. Yes, the two valley sections of the loop (orange and yellow trails) can be quite muddy in places. With slower pace and decent hiking boots on, my feet were able to stay dry. Do not recommend wearing shorts here due to thorny overgrown on the sides of the trail and annoying flies and mosquitoes.

As another reviewer said, this pictures are not of Panther Falls. This place is very popular; there's always people there. Not much of a hike to get to the watering hole, but you can go further, there's just not really a designated path. Beautiful falls but depreciated by the amount of people. You can jump off the rock on either side of the fall into the water. Be careful if you do. If it hadn't rained recently, you can get under the falls. Spring or Fall is the best time to go if you want to go there with less people and take in the scenery.

lots of switchbacks...the views were not worth it, in my opinion. make sure to take a companion if you are not in the best shape.

Great trail, but due to recent rain, some water was nearly 2 - 3 feet deep. Some rocky areas a little tough with a Jeep Grand Cherokee. Okay, yes, it was our first time going off road, and we thought we weren't going to make it! Whew!

GO LEFT at the top of the hill near the pond. Otherwise, it's an uphill climb to a dead end. It was a nice, quiet trail, but, like other people said, it really does need better markers.
