A rigorous 18 mile loop that included Jacks River Trail, Hickory Ridge Trail and Rough Ridge Trail, with a side trip to Jacks River Falls. Some fallen trees forced river crossings and bushwhacking up a steep incline at one point due to an impassable switchback. Twice a thunderstorm rolled through, dropping heavy rain for about thirty minutes each time. Otherwise sunshine laced the forest beautifully, causing awe-filled moments all day. A fun, adventurous outing. Elevation gains during the hike can be challenging for some. Make sure you're ready.
