Please beware that the first quarter mile of trail is literally choked with poison ivy. About 300 yards in the trail becomes a tunnel of P.O. one could probably punch through to make it beyond to P.O. to the drier slope above but I had to curtail my hike.
Note: to complete the Prewitt Loop trail starting from the southern TH, one would have to bushwhack through this tough section

Not an easy hike. Straight downhill then straight back up. Very difficult.
