1+ mile trail from Lake Winfield Scott to intersection with the AT at Jarrard Gap. Easy-to-moderate AT approach trail. Does not get particularly steep near AT like most approach trails. Makes for a lovely loop trip going up the Jarrard Gap Trail, up to Bird Gap on the AT, then back down the Slaughter Creek Trail to its shared trailhead with the Jarrard Gap Trail, about 5-6 moderate miles.

Good trail for first time hikers. Plenty of water and campsites. Also has the option to head up to the Blood Mountain Shelter. Seems to be moderate to heavy hiking traffic with sites filling up in the fall.
