Trail was well blazed, not heavily traveled, overgrown in places, no views in summer, no creeks or water sources. We followed the directions listed and ended up on Bushyhead Rd. The BMT actually is that road but we wanted to start where the trail leaves the gravel road on the left. There was no parking to be found. We backtracked down the road about a quarter of a mile or so and pulled off then walked back up. The trail was unremarkable. It basically climbed for two miles through laurel and light woods then descended. Nothing to see but we got a good workout.
