Nice hike. Starts off moderate but like the gentleman we met at the beginning said, it scares a lot of people away. We left at 8:15 and it was almost 10:00 before we met our first biker. Quite a few on this trail.
The trail is marked very well until you get to the top. Either we missed the sign or there is none but we were about 10 minutes to the turn-off to Burl Mountain before we checked All Trails. Little farther than we planned but the walk was nice.
Lots of rhododendrons and some creeks here and there.

Nicely shaded and dappled sunlight trail, easy to moderate, with pretty Mountain Laurel blooming this time of year. We choose to turn at Brushy Creek Trail and went as far as the wooden bridge where there were some cascades. Will return to try the longer round trip.
