When last I did it it was from spindale to the lumber mill in Gilkey, so about what this shows. very fun trail for biking. Pretty good amount of traffic but nice serene environment in some points and a small town historic feel through others. It's a good walk if you're looking for a walking trail, but if you want real hiking you might be a bit bored

Not sure why this is a moderate trail. The trail is flat with some gain as you head N out of Ruth into Rutherfordton!
By the fall of 2018, the trail will measure around 13.1+ one way.
Start in Spindale and head north to access the best sections of the trail.
