The view at the slab was very beautiful (lots of green and downtown Greenville was barely visible)! It required some persistence to get there. Lots of yellow star grass and after the big slab, we continued until we encountered a white fringetree. Also good views of the cliffs on Little Pinnacle mountain (the Oil Camp Creek valley). Got.lost coming back and eventually came back on Lawton Road.

If you stay on the trail the hike was pretty strenuous in that it just went up. Not much to see and easy to wander off the trail, which I did twice accidentally (and those were the only times I saw something worth stopping to look at). Passed only one hiker and passed through many many spiderwebs. View at the top was kind of neat, but I probably wouldn’t hike this trail again.

good hike, wandered around a lot. Took the orange trail down to the old camp, kind of felt haunted. Then took the purple trail around the lake. Made it over 6 miles, saw 2 people.

Great views after a 2.1 mile moderate to difficult climb.
