Trail starts at the Turkey Gap Road parking lot & goes to the South Fork Mills River. You climb up and then head down to the river. It is a well defined trail but the yellow blazes are mixed with some orange blazes. Fairly easy trail to walk with some rocks, roots, etc. to go over. A good hike if you are looking for something under two hours.
