I started from Brinegar Cabin on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Most of the time I hike uphill (on an out and back) leaving a down hill return. I was looking for a challenge since the weather was unusually cool for July. The trail is well marked and easy to follow. There are some trees down which are not difficult to navigate. There is water at Brineger Cabin and creek at the end.
