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.

Great trail. Lots of camping spots along the river. Can't wait to come back once the weather warms up.

Amazing even in February! Lots of creek crossings and changes in terrain! Couldn't make the loop because we would have had to cross the raging river! Definitely will return.
