A friend and I came to the area to hike Neels Gap to Blood Mountain but the weather was horrible and she wasn't too comfortable doing that much elevation in the pouring rain.
We opted for this trail instead. It was October so there was still enough leaves to canopy us some from the pouring rain. It was quite lovely. The trail is really interesting but it was quite slippery in places due to all the rocks.
We intend on revisiting this entire area in the near future and revisiting this trail and the ones we missed.
