It is a grassy gravel road that winds along a ridgeline. I went .7 miles in and turned back. A quiet walk in the woods.

Would probably be a 4 star trail if it were maintained at all. No effort, no signs or markers on the trail either. Shame.

Nice, quiet hike. Some hills but very manageable. A lot of the flatter parts were really overgrown.

First to Review

An easy hike up through a glade and then to the top of Cedar Bluff for several panoramic overlooks. The trail continues on to the Bobcat Loop Trail on an old logging road that is thick with grasses. I'm sure it is spectacular in fall, enjoyable in spring and winter, but I shudder to think about the ticks and chiggers in the summer but I don't speak from experience about that.
