Great trail with lots of vegetation and fairly cleared paths. Parts of the trail were slightly overgrown pants would be more conducive in order to avoid scratches. The route did not follow the path at some points but would always cross back to the original path.

went for a day hike with family and friends. area is still in ruins from the hurricane this past September. the recreation area is barricaded from the horse trailer parking area on in. the trail starts with plenty of fallen trees to go over and under. once we got past THOSE trees, then we attempted to follow the trail where we could. needless to say, we went about 4 miles in and then back. I've hiked this trail several times prior to Hurricane Flo; it certainly did a number on this area. it appears several years will pass before this trail returns to 'normalcy'.

I love this trail. Run it regularly. Seen rattlesnakes twice. Wear insect repellent with deet during summer because of chiggers and ticks.

We chose this hike to get in a good 13 miles. Barely got 9 because of the impassable swamp at about mile 5. Disappointing. Started out great then got very muddy and became a mud puddle obstacle course which eventually lead to the swamp. It’d be nice if the trail was completely maintained with foot bridges like the first few miles. But alas it wasn’t and was disappointed.
