Does anyone have the coordinates for the spring after flower gap heading south to north? Should be before shining rock intersection.

Fun trail that follows the river but not marked so be aware of where you are and check maps frequently. Dog friendly.

Awesome trail, very enjoyable. It's not marked at all so this app will come in handy for sure. Can't wait to do it again in the hotter months.

nice fairly easy trail. parallels a nice large creek. trail is fairly defined, gets a little confusing in places where the trail gets close to the water and goes out onto the rocks. there are many campsites along the trail that would make a great hike to fly fish and camp trip

This is a nice trail,it's great that you can experience the river and all the swimming holes it had to offer. I will advise a compass and a map for this trail,as it has numerous trails that you can easily end up on with out knowing if you are on the actual trail you planned to trek on. I also liked it because the traffic was a little less than moderate and not heavy.
