We took the red trail. A lot of bugs and the hurricane made a lot of down trees. We had to stop at around the 2 mile mark because we couldn’t get around the down trees any further. Also didn’t see any rivers or waterfalls

Didn’t do the whole ref trail because a downed tree made it difficult so we turned onto the white and headed back that way

Great trail obviously during the winter in the past storms some branches were down but did not hinder us at all. It was a great hike dog loved it all the streams and water. Would definitely do it again.

First to Review

We did an improvised loop, finishing walking the road to the official lot. Trails very well marked. Appalachian train was neat. Easy up and down. Some ice on some trails. We wore micro spikes. Not many other hikers seen. Aside from the lake, no special views. Nice 2 hr walk
