I didn't exactly hike this exact route. We took the left fork and ended up on the black forest trail, connected to Grady road and ended not far on 44 from the pull off for BlackBerry. The left fork took us down the mountain on a pretty steep trail with a small boulder pile to traverse down. Once at the bottom we followed black forest across the stream, quite a few times, till we hit Grady all at a relatively slow incline. it was a more difficult 6 miles but still a really nice hike with a great view and forest scenery.

This was a great trail! Nice for kids and those who may not hike often. A couple of nice patches of ripe wild blueberries made for tasty treat. Also a couple of nice vistas too. Would be a great trail in the fall while the leaves are changing. I would suggest wearing pants this time of year as a couple of sections had high weeds we had to go through. All in all, very nice afternoon getaway.
