This trail is best negotiated east to west as the Northern Edge of the loop is a long downhill trek. This is a primitive trail with overgrowth that used to be an old logging road. Lots of wildlife to hear and see. A very pleasant hike for those with moderate abilities. The trail is on the Cherokee County side of the river.
