Very pleasant hike with wide trails and periodic stream crossings. The elevation change wasn't super challenging. Very few people in the morning, but definitely busier in the afternoon

This trail was more than 17 miles are watches tracked 30 miles with some taking off the beaten path to see the views. We did the trail in 2 days which was hard would recommend 3 days. Had some steep hills and a long downhill at the very end. It was worth the views of the backside of Seneca Rocks and amazing views seeing into Maryland from Chimney Rock.

We hiked this trail from the Seneca Creek trail to get back to the Huckleberry trail. We saw the sign for the trail and crossed the footbridge over the river but then had a bit of trouble finding the trail as there isn't another blaze until further up the trail. We went up the hill on what looked like a trail and took another path which led to a campsite and then eventually found the right trail which if I remember correctly was by the campsite and definitely to the left of the footbridge. It was pouring down rain which didn't help. The meadow had beautiful views but we weren't able to enjoy it as much with the rain and the trail became a stream. It would be nice to try this trail again in the fall.

This was a beautiful trail with many great campsites. We started at the Huckleberry trailhead so we only hiked the northern section of the trail. This was definitely the busiest of all the trails. We had to cross the river three times, the deepest part was almost to our knees but the portion we hiked wasn't that difficult. The water was cold but not unbearable. I would love to visit again in the fall.

We took the Lumberjack trail from the Huckleberry trail. The trail was very muddy but the High Meadows trail and the campsite on Seneca trail were beautiful so it was worth hiking to get to it.

pretty good trail

Nice and quiet. 3 - 4 miles west of the Scenic Highway on a still day on the ridge trail and all you hear is the faintest hint of Williams and Cranberry as a backdrop to the critters....in between jets of course.

Hiked this trail on April 20, 2017. Went clockwise from the trail head. After about 3.5 miles (3:15 PM) a storm rolled in. We stood our ground at about 2000 feet near what appeared to be pretty sturdy, uneroded trees. The wind picked up (about 40 MPH) and we watched the trees sway significantly. We kept a watch on nearby trees for any sign of failure. After about 15 minutes the wind died down and the rain began. We continued the hike and reached the river in about 20 minutes. There were many trees (20 - 30) down across the trail (See photos).

The trail is 25 miles and hiked it three weeks ago south to north. One of the best backpacking trips in the South. There is one source of water halfway. Not 17 miles.

Not worth the hike. No good views

Used this app for directions to trail head and couldnt find it. Ended up hiking an old dirt road used for 4x4 and secluded camp sites. Suggest confirming directions to trailhead first.
