Access at the 35mph signs just inside the park entrance and on back side of the Nature Trail across from Lodge. Follows a natural watershed with large boulders, pools, cliffs, wild azaleas. Marvelous view. Links up with Waterfall, Old Still, Meredith and Terrell Trails.

My son and I had a great time hiking this and another trail. not to much wildlife but it was the middle of the day, however we did see deer tracks. I have to agree that the signage could have been better, also parking, we saw trailhead signs but no pulloffs, we did see where other vehicles had pulled off on the side of the road and we did the same. Overall 4stars.

Varied terrain made it interesting. Only one section that I would call difficult. Signage could have been better. There were parts that I didn't know what trail I was on.

I had a good time on the trail. The cliffs and watershed was nice to see. The trail goes down next to the watershed but stays on a rock ridge where I had lunch up high and a view of the hills as well. Nice trail. This specific trail was marked really well. The fall leaves could have messed me up as the trail was covered.
