Begin @ Big Cove. Drive through campground to limited pkg @ trailhead.Hard hike. Well blazed but N Bird Mt Tr is rough in some places with plenty of deadfall & poor/ rocky footing. Lots of up & down.Rock formations & nice winter views from Cumberland Tr. This loop is a workout but you'll get plenty of solitude in a nice forest setting. N. Bird Mt Trail is the rehabbed N. Boundary Trail. This is the most remote & toughest trail in FHSP.
