Trail has great scenery, one great view, differing vegetation from wildflowers and mushrooms to giant Loblolly pine and cedars. Counterclockwise is recommended as that last mile when tired is a bit tough.

This is a great loop trail starting from the same parking lot as the White River Bluff Loop. Lot holds about 20 vehicles, has a bathroom.USDA Fee area, $3.00 daily per vehicle, drop box and envelopes in parking lot. Part of the trail overlaps the Scrappy Mountain Loop which is 12 miles long. For the most part the trail is well maintained, created for mountain Bikes so well suited for hiking. There were a few blow downs over the trail, as well as end of season tall grasses in some areas. Chiggers and gnats out today, as well as hundreds of spider webs across path. Carry a walking stick for the webs! All in all, it was a great hike, I loved it. Counter Clockwise would be wise as recommended by USDA.
