1. Check in at the Forest Heritage Center for a map
2. The head of the trail is labeled as David Boren/Cedar Bluff not Skyline, across from the dogwood campground
3. You should park at the washed out bridge construction zone and walk up to the trail head so your car is waiting for you at the end, otherwise you have to walk down the road at the end of a VERY long hike
4. I jog 2-3 miles a day and this trail was still difficult (brutal). Very very steep hills. Took 7 hours with very minimal stopping
5. Take at least 3liters of water per person and snacks
6. The trail is 90% shaded so fair skinned folks don't need to excessively coat themselves in sunscreen
7. Lots of spiders and spiderwebs
8. Take your phone for gps. A couple spots it's easy to get lost. Trail markers are anything from pink ribbon, metal tags on trees to cut up logs.

Great views.....steep climbs. Trekking poles are a must! Bring plenty of water and plan to make a full day of this trail. This app saved us many times from getting lost. The trail is marked fairly well and there are a few areas you have to walk through high grass and cross several streams. Great hike

please be prepared. We had a camel back with 70 oz of water with a 20 oz bottle and a 16.9 oz bottle between myself and my wife. it wasn't enough. normally I wouldn't need near that amount bit for some reason this trail I needed more. also. check in with the rangers and let them know your going to be on that trail. and let them know when your down.

great trail though

Pretty fun hike that keeps you climbing up and down for most of the trail. Most of the trail is marked; however there seems to be a few places where the previous flood damage has not been repaired or updated to clearly direct you on the trail. This hike will take you 10-11.5 miles to complete the full trail loop (depending on where you park your car or where you camp). For experienced hikers this trail should take you about 5-6 hours and our dog loved it! Bring plenty of water with you!
