Directions are pretty straightforward as to how to follow this trail. As long as you follow the blue blazes of the Tuscarora Trail here you will not get lost on a side trail. There are many side trails that lead back to Cowans Gap State Park but just keep following the blazes.

I would rate this slightly more than a moderate trail due to the elevation gain. It is very challenging. I started in cowans gap state park and hiked to the big mountain overlook.
