Creek is still pretty high and fast (over my boots), so might be a little intimidating for little ones. There are several creek crossings, all more than ankle deep. Imagine it would be more inviting after drier weather. Trail is not marked. Take a fairly sharp left after crossing the creek. There is an inviting trail that heads straight up hill, but it isn’t this Trail! In fact, there are trails all over the place,so use the All trails map to keep you on course. The trail itself, although a bit rocky, is beautiful, running next to the creek with fairly open woods and beautiful mountain laurels. I bet it’s spectacular when they are in bloom. Will definitely try this one again.

Short, easy hike but be prepared to get a little wet. There are several stream crossings. Good for young kids.

Great trail with numerous stream crossings and only saw 1 person on a gorgeous day!
