Parked one car off Hoffman Road. Parked second car on north trail head on Blue Ridge Road. Hike south to Big Marsh followed a creek. Nice trail, but many many horse flies. Log bridges over most water crossings. This would be more difficult in wet weather as the water would run through the trail. The turn east on trail 107A is about 6 miles south. The trail from the turn to Big Pond is very lightly traveled and difficult to see. Follow the many Blue Markers on The trees (thanks to whoever puts these up!). The horse flies go away once you turn on trail 107A. Nice was through the woods along the creeks. There is a more established path once you get to Big Pond. Some wet areas to cross. Fun hike!
