It says there’s 715ft elevation... it’s basically flat so that was disappointing

Nice simple trail that's easy to follow. Really isn't much for views. But it's peaceful

Trail was easy to follow, really wet which like everywhere is right now. Nice little hike

This is a great way to get o. the LT and it makes a nice little through hike when combined with the hike up Smith's knob. It was majorly washed out as I'm writing this. Had to wade through 2' of water at one point.

Ok trail... be prepared and wear long pants because 75% of the trail is stinging nettles on both sides that are really unavoidable. I wish I would have know this before I went. Also, tons of gnats and mosquitos. The steam crossings can get problematic, resulting in you being soaked from mid-thigh down. I’d rate it as easy, ended up being a little less than 3.5 miles and 430 ft elevation gain.

Went for a good evening walk and we couldn’t make it the whole way and back in a decent time so we didn’t make it to the end. There’s a few moments when it’s difficult to cross the stream but it’s bearable. Pretty hike overall though! No good places to take a seat and have lunch but we took a blanket and stopped for it. Overall good hike, not the best in the area but not a bad day hike!

Awesome hike that follows a little stream. Did this hike in the spring so the water was flowing. Our tween-age kids did this and it was the perfect hike to give them a little challenge without being too much for them.
