My favorite trail of the loop. Somewhat challenging, but fun. It's full of beautiful streams, creeks, and falls. Got a little lost on the trail, because the blazes weren't so apparent.

A strenous but rewarding hike. Goes over mountains and follows streams. Great views and scenery. Well worth the trip. Even though it is a equestrian trail, it seems to be lightly used because it was not rutted out or was there alot of indications of horses.
