The trail starts out nice, but once you cross a small creek and start up a hill, the trail nearly disappears. There are no blazes. There is barely a discernible trail to see. Eventually you top the hill and head down. Though it’s obvious the trail heads down, once you get there, there’s no direct or obvious way to go. Had I not seen the post for the Wasson Spring and the side trail that was next to it, I would have backtracked to Blakey Road. Once I found the spring, finding ten connector to Sweet Root was easy. This trail needs work. Bad. Taking a machete is a great idea.

In August 2017 I found the trail to be grown over with mountain laurel and small trees.

On 8/23/17 the trail was overgrown and not well marked. Take a machete.
