Terrible hike. Poorly marked and consists mostly of walking on gravel road and even a curvy highway. Saw more cars than nature. Definitely not worth the stress.

It was a very confusing trail. It started off as a gravel drive way and then it darts straight up into the woods with a foot of leaf debris that made it difficult to find the actual trail. After the woods it went into a sub division road and then to a highway. The trail was poorly marked but it was gorgeous

Nice shady trail. Easy to find and easy to hike.

A very nice and simple hike. Lots of leaves and some steep areas so watch for snakes.

Very nice trail with many types of terrain, great for all skills of hikers. This is the same trail as Long Branch.

A little over half of this trail is on gravel or paved roads. If you start down Turkey Farm Road, there is a turn off to a dirt path, marked by an orange burn area sign. From there is a beautiful hike up to the top of Hickey Knob, where the views are great. You follow the ridge of the mountain back to a road near the river and the rest is paved. Not the best hike in the area, but the portion that wasn't on road was definitely worth it!

Walking

Don't waste your time, this is not a hike through the woods, but mostly a walk along gravel roads. Nothing but dust each time a car passes you. I believe the previous 5-star reviewer must have been on Green Mountain Trail, not this one.
